Do You Know Joe, Rochester’s ‘Second St. Flag Waving Guy’?
If you've ever driven down Second Street southwest in downtown Rochester, just a few blocks east of St. Mary's Hospital, you've no doubt seen him. But how much do you really know about the man known as Joe, the Second St. Flag Waving Guy?
In this cool video from Rochester's own Hippo Film Company, we find out a little more about Joe Johnson. He's the guy we've all seen, dressed in costume and waving festive flags as we make our way along Second Street. In the video, he says he's been waving flags in Rochester for the past nine years, and he does it all in attempt to give people a smile -- and make them feel better.
As Hippo Film Company said, "Get to know Joe Johnson -- a man with a heart that's even bigger than his personality." Check out his cool story here...
