After a two year hiatus due to COVID restrictions, the Parisian Promenade is back.
The Parisian Promenade will return to Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden on Sunday, June 5 from noon to 5 p.m.
Admission is free and a complimentary shuttle will be available from the Signature Place parking lot at 803 Pembroke Road throughout the afternoon. Handicap parking will be available in the Bicentennial Garden parking lot.
The idea is to create the sights, smells and sounds of a spring afternoon in Paris in the Bicentennial Garden. The event highlights nature and artistry. The background is provided by the brilliant display of the garden in full bloom with artists along the garden walkways. Local painters and photographers will be exhibiting and selling their works.
In addition, there will be fencing duels, sword demonstrations, stilt walkers, an accordion player and hula hoop artists strolling through the park providing entertainment.
Not everything will be in the gardens or on the walkways. Sabrina Woods, an aerial artist, will be swinging 20 feet above the ground in the Caldwell Park lawn area.
Cafes set up in the garden will have a variety of food including cheesecakes, French pastries, smoothies, lemonades, hot dogs and Italian ices.
Beer and wine will also be available for purchase.
Parisian Promenade 2022 will have a children’s area including Tic-Tac-Toe, a chess game area, art activities, games for the whole family, seed planting and sidewalk chalk art.
It goes without saying that poodles are welcome at the Parisian Promenade, but so are other dogs of all varieties and sizes as long as they are on a leash.
The Parisian Promenade is a project of Greensboro Beautiful and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department with support from WFDD Public Radio.
