It did rain on August 8, soaked the All-City Parade before it even had a chance to float its floats. Luckily the Labor Day Parade was coming up, and now All-City will be in Labor! So come on Monday, Sept. 7th. Dozens of community groups collaborated to create the All-City Parade, to make masks and giant puppets, to meld ideas into an organic concept that will dance and toot and weave through the downtown streets starting at 11 AM.
I wrote a blog about ithe parade last July, A PARADE OF IDEAS, which has links to more information.
Here's the All-City schedule:
11 AM Parade from 4th and Everett to Wisconsin Av. to Milwaukee, south on Milwaukee to Chicago, east on Chicago to Summerfest grounds.
1:30-2 PM pageant, in front of Miller Stage
2-3:30 PM, Parade elements on display near Miller Stage
