1pm – 5pm, Elm Street Interactive Area

For the first time, HONK! will host an interactive area combining art making and activism. We invite you to participate; share your vision for a better world by making imaginative sculpture or a silk-screened flag, a shield or protest poem. Support a cause or protest an issue — march with your own activist art in the Sunday HONK! Parade as part of our pop-up parade group. Full details here.
