The Pickle Palooza 2023 and the Mansfield Pickle Parade, are a perfect way to spend time on a beautiful spring Saturday. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of community. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget about those around us. The parade provides a much-needed opportunity for people to come together and celebrate being a part of something bigger.
I remember the first time I went to the Mansfield Pickle Parade in 2012. My life was very different then and my children where young and we went out and had a great time being silly and watching all of the shenanigans. The parade has grown and so has my family but this is one event not to be missed.
Did you know creating community can be considered a type of yoga? Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be used for community or a place to hang my heart. Twenty two years ago my husband and I moved from Arlington to Mansfield. There was not even a Target at that time. Over the years we have watched the city grow and we have always been proud to call this place home.
Scientist study places and cities where people live the longest called ‘blue zones’. The science suggest food, climate, local activities, and community contribute to a healthy, and long life. Much like the vibrant community of Mansfield and the community at Sunshine. Mansfield may not be an official ‘blue zone city’ but it will always have my heart.
You cannot talk about the Pickle Palooza and Parade without talking about the Pickle Queens. They may not know it but their hard work brings this community together and creates an atmosphere of love for our fellow humans. These wonderful women work hard as volunteers all year to put on this party for us.
Are you coming to the Parade? We would love to have you walk with us. The Sunshine Crew will be in the Parade this year pulled by the Viridian Roofing and Construction truck. It’s free! We need help handing out beads and candy. We will send out our staging location the day of the parade and I will have a surprise for the first fifteen people to the float. Sign up here to get the location the day of the parade.

Earth Day Yoga, Nidra & Sound Bath
Join Mallory for this 90-minute Earth Day class celebrating our Mother Earth. We will start out with a yin yoga practice allowing the body to release, allowing us to settle into our yoga nidra meditation. Then we will enjoy the sounds of the therapeutic crystal bowls. Sound therapy is based on the idea that every part of your body creates a vibration which resonates in a certain way. Sound healing works by sending sound waves throughout the body helping restore balance at a cellular level. The benefits include deep relaxation, better sleep, increases brain wave frequency and decreases stress and anxiety. Feel free to bring blankets, pillows, essential oils or anything else to make your practice more comfortable. All levels welcome!
