Sign-Making & Parade Planning Gathering
~ all are welcome to join in the fun! ~
Help create our Dairy Princess Parade contingent!
Share with others
This year's Dairy Princess Parade is on Saturday, June 4 in downtown Canton, NY.
We always have a booth in the park, but this year we want to have a float contingent in the parade as well!
*** We're working on a horse-drawn wagon - how cool, right! Some folks can be on the wagon, which we may want to dress out or detail in some specific way, and a bunch of folks will follow wearing signs representing workshops, events, skills, and concepts that the LLV helps to share with our community year-round!
*** Your ideas, time and good energy are key to making this happen - come on down!
Wear a sign and march in the parade, come up with a great "hand-out" for the parade viewers that's not full of sugar, tie in to the dairy theme in creative ways - help before or during the parade - it's gonna be a blast!
*** Call (315) 347.4223 or Email for details at LocalLivingVenture@gmail.com. See you there!
