Parade | Bell by Bell Community Parade -- Free Pizza!


Artist Tom Peyton and friends lead this popular community parade through the East Village. Participants are each given a color-coded hand bell that plays a specific note. As the ensemble wends its way through the streets of the neighborhood, a team of conductors wave corresponding colored flags in time with a series of specially curated compositions, prompting participants to collectively contribute to sonorous, atmospheric soundscapes that intensify as the group learns to work and play together. The parade wraps up at Two Boots Pizza, where participants can warm up with free slices and soda courtesy of the restaurant. Hand bells on loan will be distributed to the first hundred participants to arrive.
