Kids become superheroes at Greening Up

Written by 

What child wouldn’t love to be a super hero for the day? The Downtown Sylva Association is sponsoring a “Recycled Superhero” contest for children during Greening Up the Mountains this year.

All superhero costumes will be made from donated recycled materials – and we need your help to make these dreams a reality. Recycled materials – everything from fabric scraps to paper towel rolls, aluminum cans to cardboard boxes – can be dropped off at Town Hall in downtown Sylva.  

Children will be able to use their imaginations to come up with their very own superhero costumes from your donated items, get their faces painted by volunteers from Western Carolina’s University Players, and come up with their very own unique super powers.

Children can build their costume between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the DSA Children’s Booth at Bridge Park; judging will start at 2:30 p.m. near the Children’s Booth. Winners will be announced in several categories at 3:15 p.m. and can take home prizes from local sponsors.

Bring all household items and related materials that could help us make superhero costumes for these kids.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
