About Bucky on Parade
Bucky on Parade is a free, public art event featuring Wisconsin’s most-loved mascot like you’ve never seen before. Local and regional artists spent the spring months decorating 85 life-size Bucky Badger statues. Beginning May 7, you can spot the Buckys on the streets of Madison and other communities throughout Dane County.
The event runs through Sept. 12. As the official media partner, NBC15 invites you to check out the artwork, and to share your photos, videos and stories with us.
While most statues are already owned by a sponsor, 30 Buckys will be auctioned off at The Red Party, a special event planned for Sept. 29.
Event proceeds benefit several local charities, including Garding Against Cancer, which supports cancer research in Wisconsin; and the Madison Area Sports Commission, which connects youth in need to financial resources to play sports.
