The Sixth Annual Adamant Blackfly Festival & Parade
“Downtown” Adamant, VT
Saturday, May 16, 2009
Mark your calendars, stock up on repellant, and start mixing up the paper mache: the date for the seventh annual Adamant Blackfly Festival has been set for Saturday, May 16th. The Blackfly Parade is expected to be one of the highlights of the day. The parade features eclectic costumes and impromptu music –including what promises to be an impressive demonstration of virtuoso kazoo playing. People of all ages are welcome to join the parade, which is especially popular with children and adults with an off-beat sense of humor. Craft materials will be available for people who want to create a parade costume. Past parades have variously been described as “campy”, “Felliniesque”, and “the Macy’s Day Parade of the Insect World.” Last year, contestants were invited to create an anthem suitable for use at future Blackfly Festivals. The winning anthem will be played and sung at the 2009 affair.
