Walking on Air Parade
We need 500 folks to animate the Giant Puppets and Procession elements in the Grand Opening Parade that flows in two directions! This is a VERY fun position. Must be 10 years old and up. Fill out our online form.

Pageant Puppetry Workshop
Starting on August 5, world renowned Pageant Puppeteers Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles will be working FOODWORKS at 372 Main Street in the heart of downtown Poughkeepsie. This wonderful space is great for everyone and is a hotbed of creativity. Come learn new skills, have fun and make the Giat Puppet elements for the Walking on Air Parade. You can check that you would like to do this on the online form and we will send you a special invitation and schedule of the workdays so you can join us. There are projects for all skill levels.
