Join parade this Saturday

2018-09-11 06:01

The Princess Vlei Forum will be hosting the fifth Flight of Dreams Parade through Grassy Park on Saturday 15 September.

The event is organised each year to celebrate the talent of local youth, and to encourage community members to appreciate the rich birdlife and other nature at Princess Vlei.

The event is a collaboration of the Princess Vlei Forum, the Peter Clarke Art Centre, the Jungle Theatre Company and eMzantsi Carnival­.

In the parade, local youngsters will carry giant bird puppets, as well as smaller puppets and masks that they have made through the year.

The parade will also feature the Fairmount High Cadets and the eMzantsi Carnival Blokka Band.

The parade will leave the Calvin Protestant Church, 164 Third Avenue, at 14:30.

It will move down Third Avenue to Victoria Road, then proceed down First Avenue and across Prince George Drive to Princess Vlei.

At the vlei, paraders will be entertained by EmileYX? and Mixed Mense. There will be a performance by Lotus High, titled The Great Bird Race, and Jungle Theatre will perform When Lion Had Wings. Both of these are based on KhoiSan legends, and aim to highlight the nature as well as the rich cultural heritage of Princess Vlei.

There will be an exhibition of learner artworks related to Princess Vlei at the Grassy Park Library every day until Monday 17 September, as well as a performance of the Lotus High play at 15:15 on Thursday 13 September.
