The 2nd annual Suffrage Day Parade and Ball will be held on Saturday, August 29th in Balboa Park. The Suffragist's Parade starts at 4pm at the Kate Sessions Statue and is FREE!
Suffragist's costumes, banners, flags and placards are all welcome and encouraged. We march across the Laurel Street Bridge through the Park to the Balboa Park Club. (about 20 minutes). Lemonade on the lawn follows.
The Ball starts at 6pm on the BEST dance floor in San Diego - the Big Ballroom at the Balboa Park Club. A beautiful, elegant room perfect for "A Journey to the 1930's" our theme for the ball. Vintage cars, costumes, and cuisine will be part of the festivities. And of course, dance music by the Sue Palmer Orchestra as led by Jimmy Woodard. A Dance Marathon, Costume Contests and historical reenactments involving a 1934 Police Paddy wagon. (Rumor has it that Bonnie and Clyde will be there).
