March of the vegetables - March 23, 2019

  • Written by Valley View Staff
Get out your carrot costume and polish up your broccoli hat! The third annual March of the Vegetables parade will be held in the streets of Downtown Duvall on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 at 3:00 pm and will be followed by an after-party with music, kids’ activities, and a beer garden at Depot Park.
 
The parade is a pedestrian-only event, populated with people-powered floats, handmade costumes, local musicians, and marching bands all coming together to welcome the vegetables back for another growing season. March of the Vegetables celebrates beauty and whimsy, creativity and community integrity. It's not just about dressing up as vegetables (although that part is pretty fun too!)
 
The parade begins at the Houston Barclay/ Yoga Garden parking lot, (located at 26401 NE Richardson St.) and ends at Depot Park.
The event started to support the local community, provide exposure for local businesses, create a fun event that brings locals together and to honor the work of local farmers.
 
Floats and costumes for the parade are thanks to local artists, art teachers, businesses, and neighborhood groups who provide materials on their own and through parade-sponsored art classes.
 
There are only three rules for the Procession of the Species Celebration:
 
No written words or symbols since the parade is designed to give a visual break from the bombardment of words and symbols and instead allow watchers and participants to take a visual break and simply enjoy the art.
 
No pets or live animals, with the exception of Service Animals.
 
No motorized vehicles or musical amplification besides a motorized wheelchair if needed.
