What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention
Presented by Union Square Main Streets
September 29, 2012
3, 2, 1.. Blast off! Marshmallow Fluff is out of this world and lighter than air, so for the seventh annual “What the Fluff?” festival we explore Fluff in space! (Space…. Space….) Fluffernutters were served at the International Space Station (it’s true!) and we’re bringing that glorious space dust down to earth. What the Fluff?: A Tribute to Union Square Invention honors the illustrious Fluff creator, Archibald Query, who concocted the gooey sticky spread right here in Union Square in 1917. On Saturday, September 29, 2012 local artists, musicians, theatrical performers, inventors, and humorists pay madcap tribute to the creation of this great American foodstuff on two stages. Fluff games and shenanigans will spread the sticky goodness throughout the Union Square. Rick Linnehan, the Massachusetts-born, Fluff-loving astronaut, is sending us some special prizes to give away at our spacey fluff games, and yes, there will be a moonbounce! Fest-goers can sample the taste of Fluff from our local vendors presenting sweet and savory Fluffalicious delights. Pair these with Fluff-inspired cocktails at local watering holes while being transported to the ethers by fabulous shows from Hot Molasses, The Burlies, our beloved Fluffettes, Boston Derby Dames and more!
