Like The Phoenix Rising The Parade Of Lost Souls Is Back October 30th

18 Oct

Like the Phoenix Rising, the Parade of Lost Souls is back for 2021 and this year’s theme is aptly named The Phoenix.

If you live in East Van, you likely know about this grass-roots festival. Creative direction comes from the folks at The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. The event itself encompasses dance, art, music, installations, acting and much more.

You are invited to participate in this year’s Parade of Lost Souls on Saturday, October 30th which procession will be led by The Carnival Band who will be doing hourly processions at 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm from the Britannia Community Centre.  

Costumes are encouraged and the wilder the better.  And this year, you have an added opportunity for snagging yourself a great costume.  Friday, October 22nd and 29th from 3:30 to 6:00 pm The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret will be hosting an Open House at #141- 2050 Scotia Avenue where you will be able to purchase one of their many costumes. At the same time, if you wish to make alternations or get busy with a glue gun, you will have that opportunity. A sewing machine and craft making tools will be on hand.

For those familiar with the event, you may know there is usually a Lost Souls After Party which is tentatively going ahead this year at the Wise Hall. We invite you to stay tuned to their social media to see more details on this.

As always, The Dusty Flowerpot is open to volunteers assisting and performers and artists participating. To learn more visit The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret.
