Join Kari Percival and Greg Cook (me) of Wonderland Spectacle Co. in Arlington’s annual Fox Festival Parade at noon on Saturday, June 16, in celebration of community, creativity, local wildlife, and the Massachusetts city’s Fox Branch Library. (Pictured above: Last year’s parade.)
And join us the week before for a free parade craft workshop from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at Arlington’s Samuel Whittemore Park at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Mystic Street—during Arlington’s Porchfest. During the drop-in activity, we’ll be making make banners and other stuff for the following week’s Fox Festival Parade.
Then walk with us in the June 16 parade, which departs at noon from the Fox Library at 175 Massachusetts Ave. We’ll have masks and giant puppets and banners for you to use—or bring your own. The parade will be led by the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band and also feature giant puppets from Sara Peattie’s Puppeteers Cooperative in Boston. The parade is part of the Capitol Square “Feast of the EastFestival.”
