On Saturday, April 30th, people of all sizes will don their favorite Earth Day Parade costume and mask, our BIG puppets will be dusted off and touched up, and we’ll meet at 12:00 Noon, @ Central Grade School (corner of 7th and Pine). The parade will begin it’s annual trek in downtown Traverse City, starting @ 1 and we expect the streets will be crawling with microbial life!
This is the 22nd year celebrating our community, decomposers and all, in this annual spring event and Earth Day Parade!
Join in on the pre-parade fun of the Grand Traverse Earth Day Parade by sending us your DECOMPOSER haiku to be included in the storytelling and singalong at the Community Picnic at Hannah Park after the parade!
You may send your DECOMPOSER haiku to us on our Little Artshram Facebook event page:
Here are a few early submissions:
When I see you leave
Your tree trunk decomposing
Fungus among us
Silence around us
Our mushroom eyes see the world
Spores rise on the wind
Beneath Earth’s surface
microbial life stirring
what we don’t see lives
