New York City’s 49th Annual


Monday, October 31, 2022 at 7 pm | Presented LIVE by NY1 at 8 pm

The nation’s most wildly creative public participatory event in the greatest city in the world!


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 THREE ways to be part of the magic:

  • perform by animating a puppet
  • be part of a performance element, be ready to move!
  • 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.  Limited availability in 2021 due to Covid protocols.  The Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to confirm participation in the weekend workshops.
