Nevermind the weather, the big parade is almost upon us, and float building has begun!
Every Saturday from now until, float building is going in on a new location. Since the College is undergoing necessary repairs on the site of the former ice rink, float building is now at 247 W. Lorain St, the garage behind Student Health Services. Float building runs from 1 PM until 4 PM every Saturday afternoon, and many supplies are provided- just bring your ideas. Free BBQ and childcare is also available for float builders at the site during these times.
The Big Parade organizers stress that float building can happen anywhere, not just at their workshops. Stay safe, and make sure to get your float (and you!) to Eastwood Elementary by 10 AM on Big Parade Day, May 2nd. FAVA Gallery will also be hosting free workshops on Tuesdays from 7 PM until 9 PM as well as Saturdays from 3:30 PM until6 PM.
