Bump. This is shaping up to be a really, really fun event with press coverage and everything. We would LOVE for some Tennessee earthy birthy mamas to come out and represent!

I am going to be in Memphis for Mother's Day (actually I leave tomorrow for the week). Could you post or PM me more info about this? I think I may want to attend.

It will be at Overton Park, which is in midtown off Poplar (the zoo is inside the park, if that gives you a point of reference). We will have mamas in costumes handing out info, plus fun stuff like kids on stilts, a drum circle, someone reenacting Julia Ward Howe's original Mothers Day speech, plus just lots of cool mamas and their families hanging out and having fun. It's a picnic so bring your own snacks, and have noisemakers/posters/whatever you'd like for the mini-parade. I can give you more specific directions to the park if you need them.

Sounds really neat. I am planning on taking dd to the zoo sometime this week so I guess I should be able to find the park on Sunday then, huh? I am from the Chicago area and down in Memphis visiting with dh's family. I'll let you know if I need directions. Thanks!
