On Sunday, March 21st, the Ithaca Puppet Pod brought their final Arctic Animal Parade to ICG!

Swarms of people came out to greet them, with masks and safe distance, to play along, march, and drum.

Lily Gershon of Lily Silly remarked: "The Arctic animals wanted to greet and meet the people of Ithaca. Now that it was too warm for them here, they decided to bid us farewell and Ithaca Children's Garden was the best place for their final promenade. The sun was warming their heads, but the garden warmed their hearts."
