Come out and join the fun. The procession will begin at to line up at 3:30 behind the downtown library and start walking at 4  pm and parade to Maritime Heritage Park.

There are 3 rules to join the parade:

  • No live animals,

  • No motorized vehicles, and

  • No words written or spoken.

processsionThe Procession was born in Olympia when a group of people there wanted to organize an event to both celebrate the 25th anniversary of Earth Day and to support Congressional renewal of the Endangered Species Act. They had the idea for a positive statement of support in the form of a community celebration. The idea spread across the country, it has become an annual "Bellingham tradition in the spring, the event has continued to inspire the community to celebrate our connection with nature and each other through fun, imaginative and non-commercial activities.
