Dolphin Power at the Fox Festival Parade

Dolphin Banner Puppet 2019

Here we are marching in the Fox Festival Parade at the Feast of the East, Arlington, June 15. Students of the Hardy School, Arlington, painted patches depicting all the things dolphins need to live, so that we could add them to this fabric banner puppet. We painted pictures of squid, fish, crabs, octopi, clean water, sunshine, phytoplankton, zoo plankton, other dolphin friends and family, thoughtful human stewardship based on science research, no seismic blasting, no oil drilling, no toxics and no plastic.

We also sent postcards to our local legislators in support of Massachusetts Senator Cyr’s bill S448 to protect New England Coasts from oil drilling. Thanks to the Surfrider Foundation for guidance and information! Contact Surfrider to find out about actions you can take to protect our beautiful coasts. Cecily Miller of Arlington Public Art and  Hardy School PTO parents helped students make dolphin parade signs and wave crowns to bring our love of oceans to life! Thanks Cecily, the Hardy PTO, Surfrider, and all the families who rose up for dolphin power!
