What is the Procession of the Species?

Click here for a short video clip of previous Processions around the country!

The Procession of the Species is a musical and colorful celebration of our Earth. During the Procession, families, friends and citizen groups parade alongside the Indian River Lagoon Science Festival in Fort Pierce, masquerading as their favorite plant, animal or Earth element such as a rainbow or thunderstorm!

Participation is FREE and open to any individual or group! Simply design a costume, float, or giant puppet, and register your entry.  Families, school groups, musicians, scout troops, clubs, governmental agencies and local businesses are all encouraged to get involved and make this a magical community event. 


Who creates the Procession?

You do!

Citizens of the Treasure Coast, dozens of community organizations, and event volunteers make the Procession a not-to-be-missed event. Join in with your friends, colleagues, clubs, and business and social groups. There are no limits to who can participate! The Procession is designed to bring the community together and celebrate Earth and human diversity.
