PuppetPalooza is presenting a wide range of puppet-related events happening here in Santa Barbara through this weekend!

Here are my photos and a video of the PuppetPalooza events at First Thursday at Paseo Nuevo.

Two puppet-making teachers have come all the way from England to teach puppet-making workshops and to show off their creations.

Here is my video of them prancing around

Inside PuppetPalooza Headquarters at Paseo Nuevo other puppeteers delighted people of all ages

One highlight was Snook the Eco Sloth who rolled around with young visitors on the floor

Other puppets are on display as well

Some Solstice artists were there for the occasion. Claire Frandsen on the right is a regular Solstice creator

As are Kent Epperson and Pink Party organizer Kimi Vandyk

Staff is there if you want to buy puppets or tickets for events

PuppetPalooza this Weekend!

We are all kids to some degree. The Muppets event Friday night bored a lot of kids because it involved interviews with the puppeteers. Some of us work with Solstice and other events to create art similar to what these puppet events are about. We can all learn something. And there is the magic of how a good puppeteer can make a bit of cloth come alive. Hope that helps! Sunday will be free events at the former Macy's downtown! Best wishes, Robert
