Help build the 2011 Viroqua Harvest puppet parade! No experience necessary!
The Viroqua Harvest Celebration & Parade is building puppets for this year's parade every Thursday afternoon, starting around 5 p.m., at the back door of Driftless Books in Viroqua. All ages are welcome--come prepared to get messy and have fun. (Parade day is Saturday, October 8.)
We're also looking for a few items to help make this year's parade a success. Can you donate any of the following?

(YIHS parents are planning to have a food booth at the celebration in October -- and
they'll be raffling the tipi, below.)
