Celtic and French Canadian folk music are key, since this is a celebration of Woonsocket's ethnic origins...unless we can also get Polish, German, Asian, Spanish...As you can see Woonsocket is incredibly riinch cultural diversity!
The event starts at 5:30 pm and goes to around 9:30 pm. We have been requested to engage several different types of cultural music alternated with liturgical music as well. I would think that an hour or two of entertainment for each group would be sufficient, and set up and breakdown should be able to be accomplished in a timely manner to allow for the next group. We are working with 2 or 3 stages.
We at the Woonsocket Pothier Foundation are embarking on a massive city wide project, a heartfelt unification and free city event, designed to generate the resurgence of Woonsocket, the grand hub of the Blackstone Valley, and to celebrate its people, culture, city pride and promise. This Woonsocket homecoming is sponsored by The Woonsocket Pothier Foundation and The Heritage Harbor Foundation, with other sponsors to follow. On Monday, June 25th on Main Street, we will feed 2,500 inner city children. We will not only nourish their body, but also their spirit, mind and heart, thereby sowing the seeds of kindness and family love, things they may not experience in their day to day lives. That summer evening they will be OUR children of OUR city and OUR SUPERHEROES. Our city’s great diversity, history, heritage, faith, and culture--unequaled for any city of our size-- will be showcased along with ten Woonsocket historical figures, live and in period correct attire. This festive occasion, inspired by our love of city and patron Saint Jean Baptiste, will open at 4:30 pm with an open air French mass and a simultaneous all faith service, during which we will all pray together, for Woonsocket and her children. Festivities will continue until 9:30 pm.
