Tromboinists do slides on a slide at Wake Up the Earth

A pair of trombonists worked on their slides while on the homemade slides at the return of the Wake Up the Earth Festival in the Southwest Corridor Park in Jamaica Plain today. Greg Cook took the photo along with many other photos of both the festival and the parade that proceeded it.

J.S. Hummel spotted some of the many musicians in the parade: Read more.
