My Kingdom for a Horse

Actually, you would probably do better on foot or by bike if you are planning to join the Harvard Square Business Association, Actors’ Shakespeare Project, the Cambridge Public Library, Revels, Zumix and all of Harvard Square’s book stores for the Fifth Annual Bookish Ball and Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebration.  The festival is free, family friendly and will feature book store strolls, live music, dancing, performances, birthday cake and a sidewalk procession led by Curious George!

The festivities begin at 11:00 AM in the Whale Room at the Main Library.  There you will be able to make  banners, signs and/or hats to wear or carry during the sidewalk procession. Then,  at around 11:55 Toni Bee, Poet Populist of Cambridge, will share one of her poems and the newly inspired group, led by the man of the hour, Curious George, the Man in the Yellow Hat portrayed by Actors’ Shakespeare Project’s very own Allyn Burrows, and  Dr. Nick Walton from The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the group will head to the streets.

The procession should arrive at 1 JFK Street around 12:30 for the ribbon cutting and grand opening of The World’s Only Curious George Store – Harvard Square.  Following the ribbon cutting the party moves to Palmer Street.  In addition, many of Harvard Square's book and printed word stores will be holding vents, book readings and promotions to celebrate the Bookish Ball.
