The climate is changing, and it’s time to make a statement. New Bedford’s April 14th AHA night will be an evening filled with fun, as groups parade along the procession route with eco-floats moving to the beats of local marching bands. Eco-floats are anything a person or group can wear, roll, or carry along the procession route. The topics of this event are all about reducing, reusing, and recycling. All this begins at 5pm at Custom House Square (corner of William Street and Acushnet Avenue) The procession will begin at 5:30pm, travel through the downtown historic district, along Acushnet Avenue to the reviewing stand at 6pm where Mother Earth and Father Ocean will then be crowned. Everyone is welcome!
Concerts, workshops and children’s activities are scheduled throughout the downtown are to follow the parade, including SEEAL’s (Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance’s) annual Shrink Your Footprint Fair at the Ocean Explorium (148 Union Street), 6:30-8:00pm.
