Thank you to all who came out for this year’s parade to celebrate all species with us, click here for our Flickr photo gallery.

The All Species Parade has been an NEC tradition since 1979. Each year, people of all ages come together at the North Country Fair and parade around the plaza dressed as their favorite critter to celebrate biodiversity and the equality of all life. Anyone can participate.

Participants meet in the Tri-Counties Bank parking lot (on the corner of 8th and G Streets) at 12:30 for the parade at 1pm. Organizations are encouraged to dress as matching critters. Check in later for our free workshop dates and times.
