Hey, it was Candyland's 60th anniversary today and to celebrate, Hasbro turned Lombard St. into a giant Candyland game. A bunch of kids got to play and meet Princess Frostine ("She's beautiful," Jackson once breathlessly sighed during a game).
It was only for today and only limited groups of children were allowed on board, heh. But what a memorable experience. I always liked when my dad drove us down this street when I was a kid. Imagine visiting the Peppermint Forest as well.
And check out the Annual Easter Big Wheel Race while you're at it. Lombard Street: it's swell!

Thanks to Brian for tipping me off on this.
