The music is what imbues this parade with fun, whimsy, joy. Come to this low-key practice session to play music with others and get organized to spread music throughout the parade. You don't need to be a formal musician! Come with a shaker, a voice, an instrument, or just yourself to run through a few songs. Free; no registration required.
Class admission will pay for art teachers, art supplies, and other parade costs such as city permits, insurance, and facility rental. If the fee limits your ability to take a class, please contact us. Our aim is to make these classes accessible to all community members.
