New York, Say Hello to the Fish

The Puppet Co-op parade (“meet the Fish!”) will center on a school of inflated illuminated fish, other fish, sea people, giant flowers, and flower banners. The concept is that the fish as scoping out future real estate in New York. The puppeteers who want to herd fish, will dress as real estate agents, with notebooks or clipboards, and direct the fish, etc., by directing their attention to the attractions of various buildings, once they are underwater. People who want to carry puppets should wear tropical fiesta
