Fremont Solstice Fair 2012

 

Calling all Atheists and Pastafarians! It’s time to march with the famous Flying Spaghetti Monster float in the Fremont Solstice Parade at noon on Saturday, June 16th. We need as many pirates as we can get, so we welcome you to join the crew!

The FSM will be assembled the evening before and prep-ed around 9am.  We ask that pirates arrive at the designated location at 10am sharp to go over the routine. The parade line-up is at 3rd Ave. NW and NW 36th St. in Fremont.

General reminders about the Solstice parade:

  • No written words
  • No live animals
  • No motorized vehicles
  • No real weapons or fire

Tips on costumes:

Party stores, dollar stores, and craft stores almost always have pirate-themed accessories like hats, eyepatches, or plastic hand-hooks. A pirate costume can be as simple as a pair of black slacks, a solid button-down shirt/blouse, a solid sash tied around your waist, or a bandana around your head! If you have a corset, it will go well over a billowy blouse.

Red, black, and white are prominent easy colors to work with. A striped shirt or stockings are always good. Even if you arrive in something simple as jeans and a white T-shirt, once you join the pirates you’ll fit right in!

Hope to see you there!


We’ll also be running an information booth throughout the weekend, so be sure to stop by and say hello. If you’d like to volunteer at the booth, please contact us so we can sign you up for a shift.
