Snow King’s 10th MasqueParade

All the wild and silly creatures celebrate
the return of the Snow King & Lady Spring

6:45pm, Saturday, February 13, 2016
Spirit Square

Some of the best culture is the stuff that you make for yourselves, and that is absolutely the case with MasqueParade, which is having its 10th anniversary this February. Part creative self-expression via community art-making and part theatrical spectacle, MasqueParade above all honours the history and cultural heritage of Golden’s mountain home. Spirit Square is transformed into a magical realm appropriate to welcome Snow King and Lady Spring down from the mountain with a torch-lit escort en route to a glorious night of pageantry and celebratory revels.

MP 2016 LogoSpectators almost become indivisible from participants as the night comes alive with music, dancing, stilt walking, giant puppets, snow and ice carving, shadow plays, fire spinning, and other circus arts. Weeks of preparation will have led up to this amazing night, when over 1,000 people come together for a most expressive and artistic street party.

This year the Snow King’s Play House returns to the Golden Civic Centre. This is our home base for all the lead-up activity. FOR FULL INFO ON TIMES AND HOW TO GET INVOLVED PLEASE LINK HERE!
