Elgin Memorial Park  May 1st - May 20th, 2022

To support the Elgin Arts & Culture event on Saturday, May 21st, Elgin Parks & Recreation invites everyone of all skill levels to decorate the bollards in Elgin Memorial Park. This project is geared towards all ages and creativity levels. Everyone can decorate a bollard to bring brightness and joy to park goers!

1.) Sign up:

2.) Pick a bollard in Elgin Memorial Park, 361 N HWY 95.

3.) Knit, crochet, or weave your family friendly bollard decoration.

4.) Put up your decoration between May 1st and May 20th.

What is "Yarn Bombing"? Yarn bombing is part street art, part graffiti, and part activism, which combines the seemingly “cute” and comforting elements of knitting and crocheting, with the revolutionary and mild civil disobedience of graffiti / “tagging” of public objects, in order to make some sort of artistic statement.
