2010 Rex Procession
“Fables of Fire and Flame”
The theme for the 2010 Rex Procession was "Fables of Fire and Flame." Fire, one of the four classical elements, has occupied a special place in human experience throughout history. Each culture has developed a mythology to explain its origins and its power to create and destroy. From these rich stories came images and symbols which inspired the 2010 Rex Procession, the first ever with a fire theme. This theme afforded many opportunities for students to learn about the myths and legends inspired by fire in distant times and faraway lands and cultures.
