There'll be dancing ... dancing in the streets ... a guaranteed ingredient at HONK!, this year to include a total of The Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, the band who got this world-wide phenomenon rolling in the first place, will once again serve as the hometown HONK! host band.

The overall HONK! schedule is available for perusal, with many familiar aspects, including the whimsical Lantern Parades and the spectacular "Reclaim the Streets for Horns, Bikes, and Feet" Parade, by now well loved by the many true-blue HONK! fans!

But there is also a new development this year that is important to note. HONK! 2014 will be hosting a "Day of Action" to be held specifically on Friday October 10th. The goal is to set the stage for a targeted weekend long partnership between HONK! bands and local community organizations. More info on this new HONK! initiative, with updates available as HONK! gets closer to the day.

Specific HONK! Festival performance schedules will be made available after October 3, 2014. More background information on HONK!'s origins and purpose. HONK! is a rousing spectacle featuring social activist street bands from all over who come together to share their different approaches to merry making while also instigating positive change in their communities. Born in Somerville in 2006, similar HONK!s have since spread to Austin, Seattle, Detroit, Providence, and New York City, with the first ever HONK! OZ to take place in Australia in January 2015.

For almost a decade now, the original Somerville/Cambridge HONK! just keeps on rolling and expanding! HONK! ON!
