What: Nevada Day Arts and Culture Coalition float
When: October 28
Deadlines: Paper Parasols August 20, Float Entry Final design and number of participants mid-September

For the first time, Arts and Culture will be the theme for this year’s Nevada Day Parade. The Arts Coalition will be sponsoring a float as seen below. The Green House Garden Center is providing the truck and driver (our expense) and local artist have been painting paper parasols that will be tied to horizontal and vertical lattice supports. David Buglie will be providing a band to ride on the float. We will have two banners made for the sides of the float with our member organization names. in addition to displaying parasols on the float, we hope to have representatives from our member organization walk with parasols in matching costumes. We have sold over 80 parasols of sizes ranging from 12″ to 38″ and currently have received 30 back. The remainder are due back by August 20th. If you would like parasols to paint you can contact Cyndy Brenneman at Bliss Mansion, e mail: for the details. You can also purchase parasols in bulk on line from the Paper Lantern Store. If you would like the artists to paint parasols specifically for your organization let Cyndy know what you would like. She can e mail you photos of the current inventory that includes two Degas Ballerinas. We currently have more parasols that walkers. We will require at least four walkers to guard each tire.
We would love to have all our members participate in some way for this one time event.
