The Tiny Totem Animal Pilgrimage To The Tick Tock Tavern

Tiny Totem 2015-02-28 6

It's late winter. Everyone's senses are dulled. Beings need to be shaken out of their torpor. Who to call? Why, Artica, of course, Hap Phillips' and Nita Turnage's art-street theater-funhouse. 

The Articans organized a parade on Saturday, featuring the world's smallest and greatest parade floats. The idea, according to the event Facebook page, was to channel your inner totem animal, make it in a tiny size, put it in a tiny rolling cart and join the group as they made a sidewalk pilgrimage up Grand Boulevard and back to the Tick Tock Tavern.

These are a few shots of the marchers en route. More to come.

Artist folk. Gotta love 'em! Anything to shoo away winter and have ANOTHER parade in the LOU.

There's nothing dull about the title of your post Bob, had to read it twice to digest :) looking forward to seeing how this progresses!

Okay, that is really weird. I like the contrast between the parade and the sign in that window in the last shot: Serious Delivery.

We would need something like this in Haninge. Great idea.
