One of the largest events in Downtown Valparaiso every year is the Popcorn Festival and your NWI Green Party will be in the thick of it handing out information about our values. This is a huge day where we multi-task as an organization with both a booth in the festival and a contingent marching in the parade. So we need lots of volunteers throughout the day. Here is our broad schedule for the day, if you can help at anytime, please message us on Facebook or reply to this email.
Festival Setup: Starting around 8am we will be decorating our tent on the festival grounds in preparation for the opening of the festival. We do not know yet our exact location, so please let us know if you plan to help so we can let you know where our tent is going to be.
Festival Tent Morning Volunteers: The festival opens at 9am and the first wave of people start meandering around. While a large portion of our group will be heading to the parade, we need some folks to keep things going at our festival both. If you would like to enjoy a morning at the festival, help us at our table.
Parade: March with us down the streets of Valparaiso, this is a fun and exciting journey from the lineup around Washington/Bush St area, down Morgan Street for the grand march through the heart of downtown Valparaiso. Bring your walking shoes, smiles and help us wave our banners high! The exact location of our lineup has not been determined, so let us know you want to march and we can send you the location number when we get it.
Festival Tent Afternoon Volunteers: As if the hadn't been enough fun in the morning, we still have four more hours at our table. If you can give our returning marchers a much needed rest and time to grab some of that festival food, then come help us staff our table through the afternoon hours of the festival.
