PUPPETS ON PARADE!

Much thanks to our local artist, affectionately known as “The Puppet Lady”, Cheryl Capezzuti.  She is loaning us her unique and memorable puppets for our newest community event, the Dance & Drum Puppet Parade during the California Markets.  Check out Studio Capezzuti for more details about her work and the annual First Night in downtown Pittsburgh that she has been organizing.

If you’re interested in becoming a puppet on parade, meet at Studio Capezzuit behind 1509 Termon Ave. at 12:45PM to pick out your puppet.  Then at 2PM and 3PM, meet on California Ave. to exchange puppets and join the additional parades in the neighborhood!

Unsure what we mean? See us at 3269 California Ave. at the Brighton Heights Citizens Federation office to get some assistance!
