Arts Candy-Colored Whimsy Downtown

It’s May Day (daffodils for everyone at Pike Place Market, free gelato, three protest marches) and First Thursday; add to that this performance parade and First Avenue looks like the place to be this afternoon.
I’m hearing whispers about dancing cakes, a concrete-bound ocean liner, a full orchestra, twisted French humor, and a huge cast of performers. The spectacle starts at 5:30 pm at Occidental Park and proceeds to the Harbor Steps (across from SAM) where the main event begins at 6 pm.
