The Million Puppet Parade returns to Los Angeles for the 2nd year on 4/6/14. In 2013 over 300 people and puppets participated and we anticipate even more this year. Puppet making starts at 10:30am and then marching begins an hour later starting from Wilshire Blvd at the Third Street Promenade and then walks the full length. The parade is free to the public and participants can win random prizes including a behind the scenes tour of The Jim Henson Company lot. Muppets!! All part of the LA Puppet Fest.
Our puppets marched on Washington to show support for public media and today President Barack Obama’s Budget includes federal funding for it! Tell Congress how important public media is to you at http://bit.ly/YM2Yca.
Here’s just some of my favorite photos from the march. I took over 100 photos…had a lot of fun. The response was great even after the march while walking around the Capitol with friends dressed as muppets, though some people had no idea what it was for, but liked us anyway.
