The title for the 2010 MayDay Parade is UPROAR. Let your voice be heard with puppet power. The Parade and Festival is to be held the first Sunday in May. This year it is May 2nd. The Parade starts at 1 pm at 26th Street East, and heads South along Bloomington Avenue to 34th Street, then turns West to make a grand entrance to Powderhorn Park. The Ceremony follows at the Ceremony Site and Spring is ushered back into our community. The Festival transpires throughout the day, throughout the park. There is plenty of opportunity for you to contribute to this rite of spring celebrating community. We do it together. Roar!
sticks and ties, planning and paint, a puppet makes
on a pleasant sunny spring day, the puppets go outside and play
One of the Parade sections deals with RETURN and how death is part of life.
hear the story, tell your own
Dancing with the Death, Danzando con los Muertos
hear the roar of the universe
do not be afraid
embrace the partners of this dance
