The Parade of Lost Souls Saturday November 1st

6 Oct

ParadeofLostSoulsWe are pleased to report that this much loved East Van event will carry on. The Parade of Lost Souls is a community-driven parade inspired by Dia de Muertos (The Day of the Dead). In recent years, the parade has travelled around various parts of East Vancouver featuring performance art, interactive art installations and YOU lost souls.

The Day of the Dead is a time for celebration, for ceremony, for reflection and renewal. You are invited to come out and wear a costume, bring and play an instrument, make a dance and/or join in on a dance. This parade is for YOU and by YOU, all the lost souls of the world. Bring your past and your present for a celebration of life and death. We may all be lost, but at least we can all be lost together.

This year’s parade will be held on Saturday, November 1st from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. The location will be revealed at midnight on Halloween on the Dusty Flowerpot Facebook page as well as the website dustyflowerpot.org. As in past year’s, there will be workshops hosted at the Britannia Community Center as well as at the Dusty Flowershop Studio. The Parade of Lost Souls was conceptualized and produced by the beloved Public Dreams Society for over 25 years. The parade now carries on under the direction of its co-producer of the last 4 years, The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. There are many people working behind the scenes to make this great community event happen. If you would like to get involved in a performance, volunteer or help produce, you are asked to contact katsingledain@gmail.com. If you would like to help in a small or big way to keep this East Van tradition alive, consider donating to their Indiegogo Campaign currently under way.
