Summer Solstice Parade
Everyone is invited to participate in the parade. The theme is “Carnival of Elements”.
Parade participants are asked to arrive by 11:30 a.m. at Haven Road. Haven intersects Main Street and signage will point the way. No pre-registration is required. Volunteers will be on hand to help participants find a place in the line-up. The parade route will go from Main Street to North Beach Road and will finish at the Village Green. Immediately following the parade, there will be music and dance performances on the stage at the Village Green.
The Elements play late 70’s and early 80’s reggae songs in their traditional arrangements, focusing on positive messages and danceable grooves to uplift their audience. This 3-piece vocal group is made up of seasoned musicians and long-time islanders, Randy Smith, Andrew Moore, Fabrice Van Putin, Dan Burke and island newcomer Kady Fox.
The parade is afoot parade, including bicycles, wagons, carts, and people-powered floats. Please, no motorized vehicles, livestock or written words. Everyone is welcome to help create banners and costumes and to help direct traffic.
Join the fun at this annual family-friendly event! Free and open to all. For more information or to volunteer please call Laura Gibbons at (360) 376-5458. Happy summer!
