Check It Out: Honk Festival

The Honk Festival returns for the second year with musical events in Somerville’s Davis Square and Cambridge’s Harvard Square during Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 5 to 7. The festival rounds up “activist brass bands” from across North America for symposiums, free public performances, and a giant parade on Oct. 7 that is expected to feature 20 marching bands, performers from Vermont’s Bread and Puppet Theater, “Car Talk”’s Click and Clack, and (full disclosure!) me.

The organizers are looking for more folks to march in the parade from Davis Square to Harvard Square. No experience or nothing required, though costumes and decorations are encouraged. Just show up at 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, at Dilboy Hall, 371 Summer St., Davis Square, and be prepared to walk. Parents with children are welcome.

“Honk! Festival,” Somerville and Cambridge, Oct. 5 to 7, 2007.
