We learned very late, so late that we were not able to promote this, very fun parade today in Hudson. (Note to organizers, please let us know about this ahead of time and we can get the word out to a very large audience)
With that said, it was a very fun time, watching very talented and creative people, in a parade to show off their works of art, today in Hudson.
Here is what the parade was all about:
Program Description: Community members are invited to join our Tween Advisory Council members participating in the Hudson Mad Hatters’ Parade: a parade of wearable art, created by tweens, local artists, and community participants as a shared celebration of Hudson’s industrial history and emerging future as a city of makers.
The Parade is organized by Processional Arts Workshop (PAW), a non-profit arts organization that works with communities to create site-specific art parades and performances. PAW is teaming up with local Hudson organizations, including Basilica Hudson and the library with hands-on workshops to create Hudson-inspired headdresses, costumes, puppets, and other wearable mobile artworks.
The Parade steps off from the library and ends at Basilica Hudson, making a final grand entrance at Basilica’s Spring Farm and Flea. For more info, visit madhattersparade.org/.
