Wonderland Spectacle Company
Parades are an excellent way to reach out to your community and connect with a broader audience. Wonderland Spectacle Company Artist Greg Cook and I lead community workshops in creating themed parade banners, signs and masks that really stand out visually and involve everybody to tell your community organization’s story. Together, we can make a lasting impression. More details can be found in Workshops.
In the 2018 HONK! parade, a ghost of a Suffragette urged everyone to vote this year, and a tiny Statue of Liberty marched along side to remind everyone what is at stake. Thanks for all the cheers and thumbs up! To see more parade photos, visit Wonderland.
Starting Over Festival
Thanks everyone who made song bird masks with me and the Wonderland Spectacle Company at April’s Starting Over Festival at the Quincy Street Open Space with the City of Somerville, Sustainaville and the Somerville Arts Council. It was so cool to see giant song birds wandering around among the tulips and open air poetry. Thanks for making this tiny Earth Day/Arbor Day Festival into at beautiful spring pageant!

Fox Festival Parade
Thank you, Arlington Public Art, the Fox Branch of the Robbins Library, the Thompson School, and especially Cecily Miller, for inviting our Wonderland Spectacle Company to be part of the Fox Festival Parade. We had a lovely time bringing the forest to take over the streets! Photos by Greg Cook, 2017.
Let it Snow! Parade
Thanks to everyone who marched with Let it Snow! Santas Against Global Warming in the 2016 Malden Parade of Holiday Traditions on Nov. 28. See more photos by Greg Cook here.

Festival goers enjoyed “We Are Here” Ecological calendar installation at the Mystic River Celebration, Medford, September 2016.
All ages enjoyed creating reindeer, walrus, polar bear masks and Santa beards at our Parade Arts and Crafts Workshop for “Let it Snow!: Santas Against Global Warming” at the Malden Public Library, to prepare for the Malden Parade of Holiday Traditions, 2015. We’ve got a giant animal herd and Santa beard army available for any upcoming climate mobilization marches.
