On Saturday, the Hudson River Pageant took place alongside….well, the Hudson River. The ecological parade, which marches down Gansevort Street near the downtown section of the Hudson River Park, features puppets, costumes, music, dance, songs and poetry. The event is designed to encourage the community to learn about ways to clean up and restore the Hudson River, as well as understand the effects of climate change on the river and the shoreline.
Every Wednesday night for a month and a half leading up to the pageant, artist Michele Brody leads free workshops where volunteers can help create costumes for the parade. Check out the video below for an inside look.
