Green Magic! Sustainable Louisville Float wins Grand Prize at Pegasus Parade Kentucky Derby Festival 2007!
The Green Magic! float took the Grand Prize at the May 3, 2007 Pegasus Parade during the Kentucky Derby Festival!!!
Sponsored by Sustainable Louisville and a host of community businesses and organizations, the Green Magic! Float celebrated the Greening of Louisville and the planet -- from the nature tricksters of the world's cultures to the 100% vegetable oil truck which powered the music and the float.
Planning is already underway for this year's Sustainable Louisville Float: "All the World's A Stage - of Possibilities" Click here to see Sketches of the 2008 Float by Artist Noah Church.
The Pegasus Parade is the 15th largest Parade in the US and the centerpiece of traditional events during the Kentucky Derby Festival.
Winning the Grand Prize Award was a great honor for participants. The float was conceived as a community arts activism project, and the award is a testimony to the vision of artist Noah Church, the concept of cultural creatives supporting sustainable development work in Louisville, and the hard work and great fun the many Float participants brought to the Parade project. Our sponsors and friends deserve great credit for their timely support and many efforts in making this celebration possible. Thank you!!!
