Today, Jamaica Plain woke up the earth at the annual festival sponsored by Spontaneous Celebrations. I took my son to soccer practice this morning and afterward we biked to Centre St to watch the parade. Stilt-walkers, bicyclists, drummers, dancers and lots of bunnies starred in the procession. After the parade passed, my son wanted to follow on our bike. I got a bit frustrated with the stop & go and having to put my foot down all the time so I took a shortcut to Stony Brook. There we were able to watch the parade arrive at the festival where all the participants formed a circle with much rhythmic drumming and swaying. The stilt-walkers and puppets were a little scary for Peter but it was cool to feel the drumbeats reverberating in the soil. With a storm and naptime approaching we pedaled home but enjoyed a fun morning.
