Spectacle Fortuna Parade of CreativityJoin Library staff and friends as we participate in this year’s Spectacle Fortuna. The Library Book Carts will be out in full force (transformed into fire engines) while characters from Ray Bradbury’s books and stories will be brought to life.
Kick-off at Harrison Avenue and Wabash Avenue, 6:45 - 7:45 p.m.
Spectacle Fortuna is Columbia’s parade of creativity, wishing good fortune upon seniors and graduate students, and celebrating the college’s spirit and creative community. This free, public event includes: hundreds of giant puppets; spectacle items created by students, faculty, and staff; and the punk marching band Mucca Pazza.
