This morning we attended the parade for Jamaica Plain’s annual Wake Up The Earth Festival. The fun started at Ferris Wheels bike shop where I brought my bike for a tune-up and while there a woman dressed as a chicken came in to get air for her bike tires. Only in JP.
The parade was great fun. We saw puppets, stilt-walkers, cute kids in strollers, dancers, marching bands, political activists, cute kids in costumes, and yes, chickens on bicycles. Peter picked up some good loot: a water bottle from the Mosaic School and a handmade magic wand (made from a pipette).
One can’t get the true sense of the Wake Up The Earth Festival without sounds and action, so here are a few short videos too.

It was fun Waking Up The Earth, and we didn’t even have to give her a Box of Joe from Dunkin’ Donuts. Now it’s time for a good nap.
