My Giant Carnival & Costume Charity Walk, plus… other stuff! Like rowing!

Hi everyone. Google’s Feedburner has been sending out the Johnny’s List emails up to a week late. So I’m trying to fix the problem this week and let’s see if it works.

From now on the main blog, which you’re already subscribed to ( or should be ) will be a top-level overview with a small size suitable for emailing. And it will link into a details blog.

Also, I’m going to click the “force Feedburner to post this NOW” button and see if that results in something instant.

So here’s an overview of what’s happening this week!

Well… a lot of stuff will be happening. See all the details at THIS NEW WEB PAGE WITH ALL THE DETAILS YOU’RE USED TO and I’ll clean up the formatting next week.

However, the big event of the week is that I’m running my own festival, and it will be the largest in New England in October (I would know).

It’s a costume charity walk. It’s a carnival. It’s a concert. It’s the largest Boston festival in October. See and be seen at the 2009 Boston Monster March, Saturday, Oct 24, at Boston City Hall Plaza, 12-10pm. The event benefits suicide prevention.

We’ll have vendors, food, costume competitions, and prizes. The event starts with a kids parade, and switches at sunset to an adult charity walk and live concert by Lifted, Jaggery, Casey Desmond, and Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys. Over 10,000 will come and break the world record dancing Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Join a fundraising team and get a free professional photo, and free access to 2 mechanical bulls, facepainting, temp tattoos, a giant slide, “human bowling alley”, 3 inflatable obstacle courses, a velcro wall, and much more. Or just show up and give to the Samaritans (FREE to walkers, or $20 child/$20 student, $30 adult donation).

Please help. Show off your costume by sending friends to your fundraising team page. We especially need volunteers, click “Volunteer”.
