Can I get any ideas for our college week parade?

Rate this Entry
So our college week is in two weeks, and we just voted for the themes for our college parade last night, with the central theme "eras of the world". Our block tried to get Ancient Greece, but we failed and went full chuu2 with Sumerian civilization. Any ideas on what we can stuff in there to make it interesting?

tl;dr Our college parade is in two weeks and I'm looking for an idea (aside from Gilgamesh) for a Sumerian-themed parade. Any ideas?

    Start with ziggurats and votive figures and work your way from there.

    If they're believed to exist, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon are generally attributed to the (Neo-)Babylonian period. Oddly.

    Early Mesopotamian culture is cool for being one of the cradles of civilisation, so you can run with that stuff. Ziggurats; pottery; some portrayal of cuneiform, epic poetry, schools, long and nasty curses, or pernickety law codes; irrigation; make up some way to play board games we don't clearly know the rules of. Lots of beer.

    Everyone should do a Gilgamesh Cafe where you all dress as Gilgamesh.

    Except instead of serving food to those who come, you force them to buy and serve you food because mongrels.

    Thanks a lot for all the wonderful suggestions. I suppose I could try to work a few of everything in. I'll post whatever photos I can get.

    We already have a resident jackass everyone secretly loathes, so this should be a piece of cake.

    As long as said piece of cake ia being given to you by a pleb who paid for the honour of feeding baked goods to you, then all is right with the world.
