Right before the show, at 11:00am, we'll gather in front of Chapman School (NW 25th & Raleigh) and lead a parade of costumed kids, parents, and pets to the festival site. Red Yarn Puppet Band will serve as marching band and pied pipers of the rowdy crowd. The parade is organized by Andy's workplace, Friendly House, who is also a co-sponsor and beneficiary of the Slabtown Festival.
We are excited to announce a brand new line up for Red Yarn Puppet Band! We just recruited four new members: Addy Kessler (high school art teacherand all-around amazing artist), Jonathan Owicki (clown, balloon artist, accordion player and Tears of Joy puppeteer), Kate Belden (actress, builder, trumpeteer, and former Tears of Joy puppeteer), and Kaician Kitko (mask man, dancer, and former Imago performer). Jessie Eller-Isaacs (middle school teacher, singer, and "hype woman") and Andy Furgeson (musician, puppeteer, teaching artist, and Red Yarn ring-leader) have stayed constant.
Hope to see you on Saturday!
