Green Fools Theatre presents the 21st annual April Fool’s Day Parade April 1, 2012.


Free family fun!


In keeping with our namesake, our commitment to community and a connection that we embrace with ritual and tradition, we annually mark April Fools Day with a time-honoured parade and host a public gathering at our studio.


Community participants come in costume and mask or rifle through our supply to become active participants in this local happening. Masked and costumed families, stilt walkers, giant puppets, strollers, bikes, and bagpipers march through the streets singing, yelling, laughing and playing instruments.


On arrival at our studio destination, donated food is devoured and physical theatre skills are introduced. Associate artists lead willing public participates in informal lessons and presentations of juggling, stilt walking and instantaneous clown routines.


Come join in the Parade of Stilt walkers, mask wearers and Fools for all ages! Bring your own costume or wear something of ours. We will be parading back to the Green Fools Theatre where we invite you to stick around with your fellow fools to enjoy activities, snacks, and Green Fools Theatre’s stilt/ mask creations.
