Join Us This Sunday in the 2012 Celebrate Mansfield Parade!

We invite you to join us Sunday, September 23 at noon in downtown Storrs, to take part in our contingent of the “Celebrate Mansfield Parade.”   We will be processing with the puppets we have made with area residents in community puppet-building workshops

Our community puppet-building workshops were led by master puppeteer Sara Peattie of the Boston-based Puppeteers Cooperative, whose innovative use of everyday materials in the creation of giant puppets has drawn acclaim across the United States.

 

If you would like to join us (no experience necessary), please arrive by 11:30 at the Storrs Post Office.  The parade steps off promptly at noon.

 

This project is presented by the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry and the Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Inc.

For more information email bimp@uconn.edu.

We hope to see you soon!
