Siem Reap Giant Puppet Parade – This Weekend!

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Hi Everyone,

It’s finally here! The giant puppet parade takes place on Saturday 27th
February at 7pm.

We have all sorts of fun giant puppets this year, come along and show
your support for over 500 children from Siem Reap while they proudly
parade their enormous colourful creations through the streets.

Departing from beside The Warehouse at 7pm, follow the spectacle as it
makes its way around old market and bar street, accompany the vibrant
parade along the river road as it journeys to the park opposite the
royal residence.

Join in the fun as the two most famous clowns from Battambang Circus
entertain the children. We look forward to seeing you there.

Please feel free to pass this on to your friends, everyone is welcome.
