The Mad Hatters’ Parade returns to Hudson on Saturday, May 8th. The Parade is an annual community-built wearable-art parade on the streets of Hudson, NY. Anyone can join the retinue of aspiring artists, agile absurdists, and ambulatory agitators to create an open-source work of mobile performance art.
Drawing inspiration from global Carnival masquerades and Hudson’s evolving history as a city of makers, the Mad Hatters’ Parade brings together Hudson’s diverse communities in a shared spectacle of the nonsensical. Hats and headdresses, body-extensions and puppets, and wearable assemblages in any form are welcome. This year, the parade organizers are asking everyone to wear a mask & keep a safe distance from your fellow Hatters. The Parade steps off from the Hudson Area Library at 2 PM and wends its way to a final Grand Sashay at Basilica Hudson.
