The Parade & Celebration of Life

The Parade & Celebration of Life by Stella Polaris: A parade hits the streets like a wave, when Stella Polaris and the jesters arrive in The Parade. Accompanied by intense rhythms and exotic sounds the musicians, acrobats, fire artists, jugglers, stilt dancers and large fable creatures whirl forward in a dance of joy. Eventually the parade ends in the performance Celebration of Life, a jester performance filled with poetry, energy and warmth.
