A few photos from the Earth Day parade that I went to this past weekend at Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance in Silk Hope, NC. It's such a wonderful festival in beautiful rural North Carolina - I heard lots of great music but this parade was my favorite part. Puppets created by NC artists/activists Paperhand Puppet Intervention whose mission statement includes:
Our vision is inspired by our love for the earth and its creatures (including humans) as well as our belief in justice, equality, and peace.
Looking at these photos might make it hard to believe that North Carolina just barely "turned it blue" in the election last fall. :) I love going to bohemian gatherings like this one (we are making progress here in the Tar Heel state)!
Happy Earth Day!
