Visit the StoryStream Tent at the Cambridge River Festival -- Saturday, June 2, 2012

Once more, StoryStream will present an afternoon of varied storytelling activities in the Storytelling Tent, near the Weeks Footbridge on the banks of the Charles River.

ALL AFTERNOON -- Noon - 6:00

Tales of ordinary and extraordinary life in Cambridge neighborhoods and on the streets, memory games, immigrant stories, virtuoso teen performances, folktales in English & sign language, Story Flags, and audience participation!

Create your personal Story Flag to display in the Storytelling Tent!  Thanks to Clara Wainwright, quiltmaker and celebration artist, StoryStream will be displaying story flags made by immigrant residents of Cambridge.  Visitors to the Storytelling Tent will also have the opportunity to create colorful story flags and hang them to make a vivid display of images and memories of Cambridge.
