Come and help Berkeley celebrate itself in one of the most colorful, irreverent, and fun events on the west coast. The Ninth Annual "How Berkeley Can You Be?" Parade kicks off on Sunday, September 19, 2004 at 11:00 A.M. It starts at the corner of California and University Avenue and proceeds up University Avenue to Shattuck, turns right on Shattuck to Center Street and then goes down Center Street two blocks, where it ends in Civic Center Park. Anywhere along that route is a fine place to watch the parade. Traffic on University Avenue is restricted so please take public transportation. The downtown Berkeley Bart station is on the parade route on Shattuck Avenue.

This year's parade has a theme: LOCO-MOTION! In celebration of International Car Free Day and in honor of all the weird, wild, and wacky ways we move, we encourge you to rethink how you get around! Bicycle power, human power, solar, biodiesel, horsepower, muppet power - these are but a few ways to get out of the usual "driving around" mentality and into loco-motion. Limited funding is available for theme-related and kinetic art - contact locomotion@epicarts.org if you're interested.

Another way to rethink cars is by teaming up with the Art Car West Fest. Last year the parade hosted over 80 art cars from all over the country, and this year promises to be even more spectacular.

We are always interested in getting more interesting, irreverent, funny, provocative participants in the parade. If interested, please contact Epic Arts at (510) 644-2204 or e-mail at hbcyb@epicarts.org.
