Make & Take Instruments, with the Viper

Join The Viper and His Famous Orchestra for an interactive build-a-band workshop. The ultimate “green” musical experience, you’ll learn how to make fully-functioning instruments out of recycled & repurposed household materials (boxes, jugs, superballs, etc.). Practice playing along with others as we learn a song to lead the Festival’s “Musical Mayem Parade” around the block. One lucky kid will go home with a freshly put-together bucket bass.
