Philadelphia-born river rat Danielle Redden, has been exploring the Tidal Schuylkill by boat for over 16 years. Drawn to the reckless undone grace of the Tidal Schuylkill, in 2011 they decided to make a parade, with much help from her friends and neighbors.
The Tidal Schuylkill Boat Parade is Crush Art to the eight miles of the Schuylkill River – from Fairmount Dam at the Art Museum to her confluence with the Delaware River – that rises and falls with the gravitational pull of the moon. The Tidal Schuylkill bends around working refineries, heron nests, industrial ruins, underground creeks, train bridges and the neighborhoods of southwest Philly.
Here’s the Facebook Event Page
Parade headquarters is the Bartram’s Garden Community Boathouse, which offers year round explorations of the Tidal Schuylkill River for everyone.
