SOUTH PARIS — On a sunny May morning recently, six local women dropped “da bomb” on the Paris River Park. This is the third year a “Yarn Bomb” has been done at the park.

It all started three years ago when Paris River Park committee members decided that the rusty old chain link barrier at the end of the parking area was in need of something to cover it up. This started a discussion, which piqued interest among a few local women and the next year more hand knit or crocheted scarfs and squares were installed on the kiosk and a few trees. During the winter of 2020-21 a small group worked on new items to decorate the park.

On May 22, the group and a few friends gathered to install the creations. The work includes long scarfs of varying colors and sizes, flowers, granny squares, bows and a hand crocheted sunflower. Visitors to the park will be treated to an array of color and texture.

The committee is already thinking ahead to next year and invite all fiber artists to join in.

More information will be shared from time to time on the Paris River Park Facebook page.
