The Flint Public Art Parade returns Thursday, this time to Ramona Park in the historic Metawanene Hills neighborhood.

Each monthly event – a collaboration between the Flint Public Art Project and the Neighborhood Restoration Coalition – features art and performance elements, such as marching bands, jazz musicians and spoken word poets.

This month’s parade will take participants to Cook School, where a large-scale fabric art installation hangs from the eaves of the building. The piece was created by Montana-native Amanda Browder in collaboration with area textile artists Ariel Sammone, Ash Arder and Gregory Hatch, and alongside Metawanene Hills Neighborhood Association co-chairs Wendy Johnson and Bill Hammond.

After a parade led by thundering Nightfire Drumline, and a neighborhood hangout hosted by great DJ Tomas Tello, guests can enjoy live music by Mod Tie Etiquette and savory eats from Mixed Grill BBQ.

The event is scheduled to run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at North Grand Traverse, between Stone and Edgewood, in Flint. For more information, click here.
