No floats or baton-twirling here—we’re stripping this Festival kickoff parade down to the core FUN-damentals. Featuring the syncopated sensations of Brass Balagan, our astounding line-up of street performers, and the staff and families of our presenting sponsor, Community Bank N.A., this event will march us right into position for a weekend of jubilation and joy. None other than multidisciplinary puppeteers and performers Big Nazo brings up the rear. We’ll start in City Hall Park and end at the top block of Church Street.  

*While we’re calling this a “Kickoff Parade,” the Festival will be 5½ hours old already, but that’s Fools for you! Our performers start busking on Church Street at noon on Friday.
