PAPA Goes Undersea
Now in its 12th year, PAPA is more than a parade; it’s an organic, mobile art procession—and everyone is invited to participate! This year’s theme is “Undersea Madness.” No registration needed – unless you’re feeling so life aquatic that you’re vying for prizes; in that case, you must register at least half an hour in advance (table at the corner of McKinley and Grand Ave.). Led by Taiko drummers from Fushicho Daiko Dojo, the parade leaves at 6pm from Grand and McKinley and heads south, culminating at Unexpected Gallery with a celebratory finale.
The undersea theme continues into the night at the American Legion Post #1, where the 3rd annual fashion show - "Grand Ave After Dark: Undersea Madness” - produced by Marshall Shore and WEARizona will be staged.
