Join LUNGS - Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens on Earth Day for the 4th Annual Spring Awakening parade and party in the Lower East Side to welcome spring and celebrate the opening of their community gardens!

Beginning at 11:30 a.m., everyone will march from garden to garden around the neighborhood, visiting 20 gardens, and arriving about 1:30 p.m. at El Jardin del Paraiso Community Garden, where there will be music, refreshments, environmental workshops, games and other events. 

Bring your smile, kids, music, and your dance; wear your costumes, and join the parade as it snakes Pied-Piper style through Loisaida. Spring Awakening is a touch of Mardi Gras, a taste of charivari, mudballs and seed swaps. Come join the circus, it's time to party!
