Thank you Jennifer for sharing images that you took during the Canal Days Parade on July 1. To see more please go here. All photos below courtesy of Jennifer Chown.
We hope you have time to join the parade on July 1.
We meet at the Old Recreation Centre at Hwy #2 and walk up to the new Snow Community Centre. Parade starts at 11 a.m. All traffic will be stopped during the parade on Hwy #2 and Fall River Road. The giant puppets will be on display after the parade in the Snow Community Centre.
On Saturday May 7th we will start to build the first giant puppets.
The portraits of various historical figures will give us some inspiration for the attire of the two historical figures we like to create. The third giant puppet to be started that day is a dragon (Fall River Dragon Football Team’s mascot). This first hands-on workshop starts at 1 p.m at the LWF Community Hall.
We will also create flags to add colour to the Canal Days and masks that will be used at the Fall River Canal Days’ Parade (July 1st).
Come alone, with your friends, neighbours or your whole family.
Workshops are free and refreshments will be provided.
Are you or your organization interested in participating in the Fall River Canal Day’s Parade on July 1st? Please contact us.
You can come dressed up, build a float with your organization or join the building of giant puppets through the Fall River Art Project.
Fall River Community Members have decided on the giant puppets. Now it is up to you to lend your talent and hands-on help to bring the giant puppets to life.
During the creation workshops we will also work on masks for young and old that want to walk in the parade. Do you want to join in as a pileated woodpecker, dragon, historical figure, or a skateboarder? The choice is yours.
Or perhaps you like to create colourful flags to announce the Fall River Canal Days. Either or I am sure your ideas will enrich the whole project.
Note your calendar for the first workshop on Saturday, May 7th from 1-5 p.m. at the LWF Hall (Bay area). Please download the workshop schedule here.
