Mark Your Calendars

Sunday, May1st, 2016!

The May Day Parade and Festival is produced by In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre. Since 1975, Heart of the Beast has invited the entire community to participate by brainstorming, organizing, sculpting, sewing, building, painting, and joining in the parade and festival as actors, singers, dancers, musicians, and attendees. The May Day Parade and Festival has become a joyous annual rite of spring. Upwards of 2,000 participants, along with amazing puppets and floats, parade down Bloomington Avenue telling a story and creating a moving theatrical performance. Thousands more line the streets to watch the parade and participate in day-long activities. Following the parade, a pageant and tree of life ceremony in Powderhorn Park ushers in the renewal of a new spring season. The May Day Festival continues throughout the day in Powderhorn park, with music, canoe rides, food, and more. For more information, please visit the In the Heart of the Beast Theatre’s website.
