Will you join us for a Last Night Un-Planning meeting on Saturday December 17th?

You already know there's no First Night in Santa Cruz this year, so we're going to do it ourselves. It's our parade. It's your parade. No city-sponsorship. No corporate donors. We make it happen together. We're calling it the Last Night Santa Cruz DIY Parade (diy stands for do-it-yourself).

Last Night is building momentum (or at least it seems like it to us). People keep telling us about it before we tell them. We already know you are going to join us on New Year's eve, right? But it'd be nice to hear from you if you are planning something. And even better to see you, meet you, shake your hand at one of our un-planning meetings.

This is where we pull this big crazy thing together, find out what other people and groups are planning, hatch plans, solve problems, and build this smaller community inside our larger one.

The next Last Night Un-Planning meeting is:

This Saturday December 17th
6pm to 8pm
Big Yellow House
742 N. Branciforte Ave
Santa Cruz

Let's get a group together. Start a marching band. Build puppets. Get our bicycle friends together. Form a dancing troupe. Organize our kid's play group. Anything and everything!

If you are trying to make New Year's eve plans, here the info you need: The Last Night Parade will meet up at 5pm New Year's Eve at the Saturn Cafe lot.

Committed so far: Art & Revolution, Village Drumming Circles, The Opera Lady, the Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra, the Man in Black, firedancers, stilt walkers, Peace Walk, Santa Cruz Moontribe, puppets, bunnies, clowns, and bike kids. (We'd still like to see Samba bands, marching bands, more music, political groups, a coalition of homeless folks, art cars, zombies, pirates, more kids and parents, and more more of everything in our community)

P.S. That same Saturday at noon, join us for a Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra build day and practice also at the Big Yellow House. The Trash Orchestra, a recycled percussion marching band, will be marching proudly (and cacophonously) in the Last Night parade.

Anyone know how we can get a hold of Samba bands who might like to join us for Last Night?
