Saturday October 1st, Main St., Jamestown

Join fellow citizens and community groups in a collective art experience that no one will soon forget… the handmade parade is a parade for anyone that wants to celebrate creativity and diversity in a non-political activity that fosters community involvement and creative expression. Described as a “walking theatrical performance”, our parade will also glow after dark! everyone and anyone is invited to register themselves, their family, or their group as a participant and get busy building their small float, prop, or costume. The only ‘rules’ are: no live animals, no written words, logos, or motorized vehicles (motorized wheelchairs acceptable) and all parade participants are required to be in costume. Easy right?

Attendance is FREE!–To participate in the parade there is a nominal fee for:

●   Individuals———-$5.00

●   Families————-$10.00

●   School Groups—–FREE!

●  Groups & Organizations—–$25.00

         (To encourage other non-profits to participate, we will waive the entry fee!!!)
