We Love a Parade!

The season of parades is upon us. The Flag Day Parade is this Saturday, June 14. The Pride Parade is next Saturday, June 21. But there is one parade that may have escaped your notice: the Kite's Nest parade-walk, from Kite's Nest, at the south end of Front Street, to the new River City Garden, at the north end of Front Street, happening on Sunday, June 15.

The parade-walk on Front Street is part of the Kite's Nest Spring Expo. For the past few months, the young people at Kite's Nest have been exploring architecture and geography, drawing comics and writing stories, working with wood and making ceramics, examining our food system and starting a new community garden, and on Sunday they want to show everyone what they've been up to. 

From 2 to 3:30 p.m., at 108 South Front Street, there will be readings by young writers and exhibitions from all the spring workshops, as well as the chance to join the kids in drawing comics, building with wood, and turning trash into treasure.

At 3:30 p.m., the parade-walk will begin across town to 59 North Front Street to the new River City Garden to enjoy lemonade while learning about the new garden, a living sculpture, and a table Kite's Nest kids built from scratch. Everyone is encouraged to bring musical instruments or props and join the parade!

  1. Much as pains me to agree with Rob Perry...there is no (practical) way to separate heavy metal from storm water cascading down from hospital hill. Given that, why would the city fill the Riverloft property with sediment dug from the tidal stream that empties behind the DPW?
