What: All Species Parade!
When: May 9, 2014, 4:30pm
Where: Town Mall, Brunswick

Come one, come all to the Annual All Species Parade in Downtown Brunswick, Maine! Once again, to celebrate spring and the diversity of natural species on our planet, Spindleworks and Arts Are Elementary are hosting a community wide parade. Everyone is welcome to join in, dressed as or carrying a representation of their favorite species. Creative visual interpretations of species are welcome and it is requested that live animals, motorized vehicles(aside from motorized wheel chairs), and slogans or words are left at home. Those interested in participating should gather on the town green at 4:00 for a prompt 4:30 start. The parade will head down Maine Street towards the river, take a right on Bank Street, another right on Federal Street, and a final right on School Street back to the town green. The parade will end just as the first ArtWalk of the season begins. The theme of Species will continue with the exhibit On the Edge at Frontier Café (14 Maine Street), hosted by Spindleworks. The exhibit will draw attention to our living planet both to celebrate, and to raise awareness of the diversity of species, all of which are affected by our actions and inactions. The reception will run from 5-8pm.
