The Valley’s only pedestrian-driven community parade returns for a sixth installment this Saturday, this time with a new home at Civic Space Park in Downtown Phoenix.
2011PAPAPhoenix Annual Parade of the Arts debuted Downtown in 2006 and this year transitions from Roosevelt Row to nearby Civic Space Park, one of Sunset Magazine’s Top 10 City Parks.
But don’t let the fancy new digs fool you: PAPA promises more of the same brand of family friendly fun including live music, puppet shows, street performers, circus attractions, floats, face-painting, and dance–all leading up to the 5:45 community led parade that will weave through the streets of Downtown.
There’s no event like PAPA, which unites the arts with the greater community by providing a free and open to the public, mobile expression of the arts lifestyle that is unique to Downtown Phoenix.
So decorate your bike, dress up like a elf, paint your face, and let loose at the Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts, an all-ages, all-shapes, all-sizes, all-day party like no other.
