Water Project Festival Update

Posted By on Fri, Mar 12, 2010 at 11:09 PM

The Water Project Festival organizers recently announced a change in the weekend festival's schedule and a cool new partnership with Solar Rock - the Tucson solar-powered music and community festival. On Saturday, March 27, the festival teams up with Solar Rock at Himmel Park at Tucson Boulevard and First Street. The enviro-vendor fair will be there just as planned, along with music, food and entertainment. City Councilman Rodney Glassman will speak about the city's commercial rainwater harvesting ordinance, and there will be art activities. Water-themed costumes are encouraged. At the Himmel Park Library next door there will be a film program for adults and kids called "Messages of Water."

Performance events are still part of the festival weekend and you can continue to be part of that by helping to make puppets and props or participating in performance rehearsals. Go to Skrappy's tomorrow (Saturday, March 12 and March 20) at 191 E. Toole Ave. Make puppets, props and costumes from noon to 4 p.m., and movement and theater rehearsals are from 1 to 3 p.m.

Next weekend you can also get involved in helping with fundraising for the project at the Fourth Avenue Street Fair, March 19-21. Volunteer to help sell Spike/Jones soda, tea and water (funds benefit the festival, so you should probably buy some, too). The festival organizers also need help distributing postcards to folks passing buy and you can also create sculptures and costumes out of recycled plastic bottles during the street fair.

Make puppets, move your butt and push some Jones soda on folks (you won't feel too bad, since it's made with sugar and not corn syrup - vanilla bean is my fav), e-mail to get involved.
