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.
