Parade Puppets

Large puppets give height, movement and colour to a parade or event - especially if there are several of them. Fun to make, fun to use, these large puppets really allow the imagination to fly. Ideal for groups wishing to participate in a parade or group activity.

People can join in and decorate a large puppet which then comes to life and travels through your event. For example, a large fish has scales which people create and then add to the fish, allowing them to add personal flair to a group effort. Or a butterfly’s wings which are made from hundreds of butterflies! A great way for people to become engaged with your event.
