7:00am until 10:00am
Octupy occupied the Rose Parade!! 1/2/2012

The octopus is on the move! On January 2, 2012 it’s part of Occupy the Rose Parade (OTRP) and it’s looking for puppeteers.
We’ll meet at 7am on January 2 at Singer Park – hang out beforehand with the Occupy Block Party or aim to arrive in Pasadena at 6am (traffic is reeeally bad). We’ll be parading for 1.2 miles, so please be able to walk 2 miles comfortably.
We’re adapting the puppet a bit so it’s easier to carry and there’s also some more theatricality on the way. For this outing we don’t have City Hall to use as a prop so, to sharpen the anti-corporate finance message, we’re making Octy ‘accessories’ that include a huge hand attached to one of the tentacles, which will be sticking a dollar bill into a ballot box, and a hammer, with which a tentacle will try to smash a picket-fenced house.
Potential puppeteers please contact us at owendriggs at gmail dot com – absolutely no experience necessary!

“OTRP has obtained full permit police protection for OTRP as well as two separate OTRP physical site locations, one of which is Pasadena Singer Park”
