Parades for All Occasions is an interactive performance event in which participants are invited to plan and perform their own celebratory procession. We provide the Library of Everyday and Extraordinary Things (made up of paper-mache objects and painted banners) and guide participants in choosing from that collection, recognizing their power to name and uplift what's important to them — whether it be fruit, friendship, or frivolity.
