UPROAR with a tiger’s tail (tale)

UPROAR
The title for the 2010 MayDay Parade is UPROAR. Let your voice be heard with puppet power. The Parade and Festival is to be held the first Sunday in May. This year it is May 2nd. The Parade starts at 1 pm at 26th Street East, and heads South along Bloomington Avenue to 34th Street, then turns West to make a grand entrance to Powderhorn Park. The Ceremony follows at the Ceremony Site and Spring is ushered back into our community. The Festival transpires throughout the day, throughout the park. There is plenty of opportunity for you to contribute to this rite of spring celebrating community. We do it together. Roar!
