Creek Float is a floating art parade held on Onondaga Creek through the heart of downtown Syracuse. The event is held in an effort to raise awareness and appreciation for the conservation of Onondaga Creek and the Onondaga Creekwalk. The event coordinators work closely with Creek Rats, Inc., a non profit conservation group committed to preserving Onondaga Creek and Adapt CNY’s Public Arts Task Force promoting the beautification of Central New York, downtown Syracuse and the Creekwalk through public art. It is a fun twist on the standard perception of an art show.
