Join us in breaking the record for largest puppet parade in Los Angeles in this 2nd annual public participation parade. Bring your own puppet, buy a puppet at our festival’s table, or make one at the start of the parade route at our free puppet making tables. We then march down the full length of the Promenade. At the end of the parade route there will be a closing ceremony, raffle drawing for prizes and a puppet dance off. Hand puppets, finger puppets, marionettes, monsters, shadow puppets, multi-person puppets -- all our welcome to join professional and amateur puppeteers for day filled with color.
