*The original scheduled date of May 6 was canceled due to rain but has been rescheduled to the following Sunday of May 13*

The May Day Parade and Festival in South Minneapolis is one of the most fun things Minnesota Atheists get to do during the year. We gather at Cedar Field at noon to march down Bloomington Ave from Cedar Field to Powderhorn Park. We carry signs as we march to educate the public about us. We never fail to get a welcoming and enthusiastic response from the crowd!

After the parade, which starts at 1:00, we meet at our booth. It's a great chance to talk to people who are supporters of our causes, even if they are not atheists. Many of them feel just as strongly about the importance of the separation of church and state as we do. So stop on by the booth, or better yet, march in the parade to show your support!

For more information, visit The Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater page: http://www.hobt.org/mayday/parade/route.html

Contact Steve Petersen at [masked]. If you are also interested in helping set up, staff, or take down the booth, Steve would love to hear from you.

Wear your Minnesota Atheists t-shirt if you have one, but if you don't, we will gladly give you one on the spot free of charge.

The organizers of the parade and booth request we do not bring disposable water bottles and encourage everyone to bring their own reusable water bottles.

    My first event with this group and I was happily surprised by the amount of support we received. No rocks or insults were thrown; lots of clapping and cheering. And lots of hugs! And the other members made me feel very welcome, thanks! I'll know next year not to show up so early -- got to the park at noon, parade started at 1pm but we didn't move until 2pm.
