MILFORD - The 2021 Big Draw Festival Delaware, sponsored by Mispillion Art League, is pivoting to Plan B because of the leadership’s concern for the health and safety of the community participants and our volunteers. The festival’s Plan B still emphasizes this year’s theme, "Make the Change.
Making the Cardboard City last year was a hit with the community, and this year the Art League will be turned into an “Under the Sea” world. They need the community’s help in creating real or imagined sea creatures and plants to inhabit this world.
Plan B also includes a socially distanced “Under the Sea” Costume Parade in downtown Milford on Oct. 30. Show off your own homemade costumes using recycled or recyclable materials. The parade begins at Bicentennial Park in downtown Milford (next to Arena’s parking lot) and follows the Riverwalk to the Farmers Market, where all the creatures can Trick or Treat at the market.
The four previously planned Saturday events have been canceled.
Participants can pick up a free art kit starting Oct. 2 at the Milford Farmers Market and at the Art League while supplies last.
MAL offers classes all year, from beginners to advanced, ages 5 and up. Register for upcoming classes at www.mispillionarts.org/big-draw-de/ or visit https://facebook.com/thebigdrawde for more information.
