Meet at the Southwest corner of Monroe Park on Halloween.
The 10th Annual Halloween Parade is around the corner, October 31st on Halloween Proper, 7pm, from the Southwest corner of Monroe Park, we will gather for A Funeral March for Individual and Collective Depression!
We confront the imbalance within ourselves both solitary and as a lattice of individuals as we strive to be a reflection of our purist intention….while having fun! We will look at our relationship with nature, and with massive puppets we will come together to celebrate community and spontaneity All the Saints-style with ruckus and puppets in the streets of Oregon Hill. Our Halloween parade is an ancient form of huge pageant style puppetry with the Dixieland tribute to modern day New Orleans style funeral marches. We are blessed to have a community that welcomes such wildness because wildness is necessary!
Join us for 10 years of All the Saints’ Halloween Parade, this years parade will include members from NoBS Brass Band, stilt walkers, Zombie String Band, 15foot saints style matroyshka-madonnas, 5 person buffallos, moose, a celestial tribute party, honoring the moon and the stars as well as mother earth, celebrating migration with tribute refugee puppets. “We will use our bones and blood to end your fracking flood” no pipeline boat will join us to speak up on behalf of mama earth. And of course we will have zombies, gouls, pumpkins, and whatever costume you show up in! This parade relies on your participation, so show up ready to carry puppets, dressed and willing for to do just about anything for Halloween fun!
