On Easter Sunday, April 17th, San Francisco’s Dolores Park, aka the “gay beach,” saw the resurrection of the city’s thirstiest costume contest. After a two-year hiatus, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and guest emcee Peaches Christ hosted a fabulous event, attracting a huge crowd of scantily clad revelers to SF’s Mission District. This year’s celebration, called “Back to Our Old Habits,” featuring live entertainment and performances by the sisters, climaxed with the long-awaited Hunky Jesus and Foxy Mary costume contest.
Here are some of the best moments and hottest looks from the contest.

The day began with an Easter Egg Hunt, storytime, and other fun activities for the kids, or kids at heart. At noon, iconic celebrity guest emcee Peaches Christ hosted a variety show featuring drag, live entertainment, and “miracles” that only the Sisters know how to perform.
The event’s lineup included Kitten on the Keys, Carly Ozard, Kippy Marks, a high-energy set featuring stars from Black drag revue “Reparations,” Oakland’s Rebel Kings, Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, star of “The Voice” and Misfit Cabaret Kat Robichaud, and many more.
Throughout the day, costume contest hopefuls were invited to take center stage and flaunt their Easter spirit. All were welcome to compete in the colorful Easter Bonnet contest, the Foxy Mary contest, and the highly anticipated Hunky Jesus contest!
This year’s winner might surprise you but, nevertheless, it’s a clear choice.
