"Greensboro Beautiful brings Paris to Greensboro when Parisian Promenade returns on Sunday afternoon, June 1, noon to 5 pm at Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden.
Admission is free and open to the public.
In its 13th year, Parisian Promenade offers the sights, smells, and sounds of a spring afternoon in Paris, in the full bloom of Bicentennial Garden.
Visitors can look forward to:
Local artists, painters and photographers exhibiting and selling their works;
A sidewalk café offering crépes, gelato, pastries, coffee, smoothies, lemonades, hot dogs, and even Italian Ices;
A Children’s Area for kids of all ages with balloon sculpting, temporary flower tattoos, art activities, family games, life size chess and tic tac toe, and sidewalk chalk art;
French Cooking demonstrations presented by Chef LJ Rush from GTCC’s Culinary Arts School;
A performance by Theater 232, a collaboration of Triad Stage and UNC-Greensboro;

Back by popular demand will be the “Poodle Parade” at 3 pm. Poodles of all sizes are welcome to participate in the parade, and must be on a leash and accompanied by a responsible dog handler. Finally, the Greensboro Historical Museum will bring history to life at the David & Rachel Caldwell Historical Center adjacent to the Garden. Visitors can interact with local historical figures and participate in turn-of-the-century children’s games.
Visitors should follow signs to convenient parking. A complimentary shuttle service will be available throughout the afternoon. Handicap parking will be available in the Bicentennial Garden parking lot. Organizers also ask attendees to look for and use the recycling containers for bottles and cans.
