, the NWI Green Party needs you to march with us this Independence Weekend. We have spots in parades in the two cities where our local Greens are on the ballot this November. Help us carry signs and hand out cards as we walk in the parades in Portage and Hobart. This is a great opportunity for our local movement to be visible and to share information about our Green values. Among the red, white and blue join us in a wave of green as we promote our environmental values and social justice.
Saturday, July 1st, Portage - a leisurely 1 mile walk down Central Avenue and Willowcreek Road. Parade begins at 10am, please arrive before 9:45. Lineup is in the field next to the Old Portage Mall, please enter at Central Ave and Roy Buckley Way. Look for us, probably near the back. Will have a green wagon with flags. There are weather related concerns for Saturday that may alter or cancel the parade, check our facebook page for any updates.
Tuesday, July 4th, Hobart - a slightly more robust 1.5 miles through downtown Hobart. Parade begins at noon, we will gather starting around 11am. Lineup is at the Hobart Middle School along 8th Street west of Fleming Street. If you're coming by car, it would be best to avoid traffic by coming into Hobart from the south along 10th Street or up State Road 51 and parking in the 900 block of Lake Street and walking to the parade gathering area at the Middle School two blocks away. Please note the Hobart parade is long walk in the sun, so bring some water, hat and sun screen.
