Musketaquid Earth Day Celebrations, Sat., April 30th

Musketaquid Earth Day Parade 2010
Celebrate the Earth and Concord's wild places on Saturday, April 30!  Festivities get underway at 10 am by the Concord River, at the Lowell Rd. boat ramp and bridge with a river ceremony.  At 10:45, carry a puppet in the annual parade, that sets out from the river to Monument Sq. and to the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts on Stow St.  From 11:30-2, the Earth Day festival takes place outside the EU with food, live musical performances, information tables, and crafts.  Also, don't miss the annual Earth Day arts exhibition on the 2nd floor of the Umbrella.

Special note, my son Colin Nevins' jazz quartet will be making their Musketaquid Earth Day debut, on the stage at 12:30.  In his younger years, he helped lead the parade dressed and dancing as an eagle.
