Super Saturday seeks volunteers for next month’s event

Super Saturday’s 2011 parade down Melrose, with its costume theme of “Knights, Princesses and Dragons,” was kicked off merrily by a mock medieval sword fight. On March 17, this year’s Super Saturday parade will have the costume theme “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” Dress up as Kermit the Frog, a leprechaun, leaves, plants, a recycle bin – whatever. Go green!

As the 34th annual Super Saturday approaches on March 17, a call has gone out for volunteers to lend a hand both at next month’s event and in the future. Super Saturday can always use an extra hand setting things up out on Melrose Avenue on Friday, March 16, manning the performance venues,  helping out with the community stage on Saturday or helping tidy up after the exuberant festival is over.
The Children’s Theater Festival Board is also always looking for new members willing to pitch in with the year-long organizational efforts that make Super Saturday possible.
Visit for specifics on Super Saturdays past and present. If you think you might be interested in joining the board, or just want to help out in some way with 2012’s Super Saturday, call chairperson Marianne Carruth at 828-859-8322.
