Waking up on Easter

For those who don't know, camping out in the city parks on Easter weekend is a tradition for some people. They've been doing it for a long time, and they're going to keep doing it, no matter what, so the City of San Antonio accommodates them by lifting the ban on overnight camping for the weekend. It's sort of like an annual Occupy event that's been going on for decades, but one that's less angry and that's over by Monday morning.

If you've never camped out in the parks yourself, KSAT-12 has a brief look at the scene. For your entertainment, of course. The station sent one of its brave -- and perhaps a bit foolish -- reporters out on Sunday morning to see what it's like when these campers first wake up for their Easter festivities. Or, really, when they get woken up by a bright light and a camera.

Check it out. The fun part really starts at 1:10.
