OUR 2014 PROCESSION
Join us for our first-ever evening procession on May 17, 2014! The procession will take place from 6-9 pm, starting and ending at J.T. Owens Park on Niantic Avenue in Providence, RI. Join along with community members and guest performers, including Big Nazo Puppets, the Extraordinary Rendition Band & the Extraordinary Youth Ensemble, the What Cheer? Brigade and more. We will have homemade lanterns to lead the way, a moving shadow puppet theater and a variety show to cap off the night!

This year's workshops and culminating procession will focus on the diverse neighborhood that evolved in the early 20th century on the site of the Huntington Business Park, which sits on the western side of Mashapaug Pond, as well as the environmental challenges the park faces today.
