All participants dressed in medieval/Renaissance costumes, please meet at the John Scott sculpture "Ocean Song" at 5:00 p.m. (pictured above) at Woldenberg Park, not far from the Audubon Aquarium. (Those playing Joan and other key roles must arrive at 4:00 p.m.)
We will have music and a prayer before the parade...and possibly some jugglers and flame-throwers...depending on who shows up with their Renaissance talents....(yes, YOU!)...
The parade rolls at 6:00 p.m. up Conti Street, then down Decatur to the Joan of Arc statue. We expect to be at the statue around 6:40 p.m. to toast Joan for her birthday.
The sculpture, seen through my Joan of Arc parade coordinator eyes, looks like flames, with spirits rising above...read more about its jazz origins and the artist John Scott, who passed away in 2007, below:
