Saturday, April 29th – The 8th Annual Polish Hill May Day Parade!


All are welcome to join in for Polish Hill’s 8th Annual May Day Parade!
The theme this year is “Metamorphic Movements.”

Think…The change of form and structure due to heat and pressure.
Imagine…New paths and movements for all creatures and elements.
Be creative with your interpretation!

To join in the parade, meet up at the dead-end of lower Melwood Street at noon (just down from Pittsburgh Filmmakers.) Feel free to dress up, bring floats, banners, flowers, umbrellas….anything that feels celebratory and in the spirit of workers rights and the rites of spring. And most importantly bring yourself and your loved ones!
At 1pm the Parade will move up from lower Melwood and through Polish Hill, ending at West Penn Park for a community BBQ and pick up baseball game!

Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to join in the planning of the parade and float building or any other contributions they’d like to make. For more info please email: maydaypolishhill@gmail.com
