Be one of the “Reindeer Against Global Warming” in Malden’s annual Parade of Holiday Traditions beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017. Join artists Kari Percival and Greg Cook of Wonderland Spectacle Company as part of a group of families and concerned citizens working to “Save Winter.” (This is what we looked like last year.) The project is funded in part by The Malden Cultural Council.

No Antlers? No problem. Come to our free Mask Making Workshop at the Malden Public Library, 36 Salem St., at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, to make your own reindeer mask.

Or just show up to the parade where it starts, at the Salemwood School, on Nov. 25 dressed in warm, festive colors (red!). We will have extra masks, Santa beards, signs and banners that need enthusiastic parade dancers to hold them.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. The parade route is 1.6 miles long. Bikes, scooters and strollers are welcome for little feet. Don’t forget to bring a snack and a drink. At the end of the parade route there will be hot cocoa and cookies where the parade ends at the Malden Teen Center, and then a tree lighting in front of the Malden Public Library. Hope to see you!
