...like a child's imagination brought to life”
–Robert Isenberg in Pittsburgh Magazine


Cheryl Capezzuti's giant puppets have been the main attraction at the First Night Pittsburgh Parade most years since 1998. She has served as master puppetmaker and Artist-in-Charge for this community-made, people-powered event for more than 20 years. Want to join the parade? Just show up on 10th St. under the convention center by 7:30 PM on New Year's Eve and the crew will give you a puppet and you'll be part of the show.
