Volunteer to Animate a Giant Puppet or to Marshal the Parade!

Whether you are a veteran of previous parades, or a newcomer who wants to see the Parade from the inside this year, we welcome you to join us.

There are TWO ways to be part of the magic—perform by animating a puppet or help with production, crowd control, and procession by being a parade Marshal.

No previous experience with 20 foot tall glowing caterpillars or bullhorns is necessary.

You can also help us to build the Giant Puppets that lead the procession every year. See the Workshop Schedule under ARTISTRY.
