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!

The Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to confirm participation in the weekend workshops.
