The Salem Puppet Parade will be there with a few puppets to try on for size. There will also be a lively array of activities and information will greet visitors as Salem Public Library hosts its fifth annual Ask the Experts event. Ask the Experts features a variety of local experts hosting activity tables on the main floor and special group demonstrations in the Heritage Room.

This event is free and open to the public, with activities to appeal to all ages. It is an open house, drop-in style event, so community members are welcome at any time during the afternoon.

Salem Puppet Parade 2018 Planning

It’s never too early to start planning! We’ve got the date for the next Salem Puppet Parade scheduled, Sept. 22 at the Open Street Salem event. But I’d love your help to make this event bigger and better than last year (although 2017 was pretty dang fun!).

So let’s start planning. Some ideas I’d love to explore include:

  • a couple of puppet workshops to explore mediums and techniques
  • inviting a live marching band
  • more people participating with huge puppets
  • more spectators
  • giving out candy
  • inviting businesses to participate
  • prizes!

Who wants to help planning? Drop me a line or two and let me know your ideas and if you’d like to help plan. The more, the merrier my puppet loving, art making friends!
