ARCATA BALL PARK – Preparations are underway for the Hullabaloo portion of Saturday's Yes We Cann Parade and Hullabaloo cannabis celebration.
Sign up and registration for the parade is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a Humboldt State parking lot at 14th and Union streets. The parade begins at 2 p.m. and concludes at 3 p.m. at the Arcata Ball Park, where the Hullabaloo will be held from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. The event includes music, beer, wine and the sale of medical cannabis for those with valid Prop 215 recommendations.
Friday afternoon, the outfield stage is under construction, with pop-up tents for vendors awaiting assembly. The dunk tank is in place and fencing for the left field "215 zone" is being set up.
"We've had fantastic assistance from the city," said spokesperson Emily Stratman. "It's been a really great collaborative experience."
A timelapse video of the ballpark preparations is being recorded, and will be posted to the Yes We Cann Facebook page.
