Trees and peas walked, carrots were used as drumsticks, and bystanders marveled as the March of the Vegetables debuted on Duvall streets Saturday.
This parade celebrating home-made art, community, and the return of another growing season, drew more than 200 participants, some carrying vegetable art, some dressed as vegetables, some just wearing them. There were also farmers, pollinators, and even Santa Claus showed up.
“You have to hoe, hoe, hoe your vegetables,” he explained.
Following a short parade down Duvall side streets, the group marched down the sidewalks of Duvall’s Main Street, to the entrance to Depot Park, for a post-parade community celebration of live music and children’s activities.
Event organizer Betsy MacWhinney thanked the participants and volunteers for supporting the whimsical event.
