Procession Mission

To empower communities to engage in cultural relationships with the natural world as a means of sustaining efforts of environmental protection and restoration.

Procession Participation Rules

The Procession only has three rules for participation. The three rules below inspire, nourish and protect the Procession’s cultural evolution of imagination, creation and sharing.

  1. No written or spoken words. We use no words, symbols or lyrics in our art, music or dance.
  2. No pets or live animals. We have no live animals in the Procession, with the exception of service animals.
  3. No motorized vehicles. We do not motorize our creations, and that includes the use of musical amplification. Of course, a motorized wheelchair is certainly permitted.
