Conceived by a group of area artists and arts organizers including Eileen Brand Hedley, Melanie Cronin and G. Steve Jordan, the Phools Parade aims to engage the community in an event that brings out the artist in each of us. The parade gives participants an opportunity to show off their creative spark, whether you choose to drive or push a sculpture, engage in performance art or fashion costumes, banners, puppets, etc. This year, the organizers have added new prize categories and are excited to welcome motorized vehicles to the parade. Please register all vehicles in advance at www.phoolsparade.com. All ages and skill levels are welcomed and encouraged.
