CELEBRATE THE SEASON WITH BAREBONES OUTDOOR PUPPETRY SPECTACULAR
Each Halloween season, Ninth Ward-based puppet theater BareBones transforms Hidden Falls Regional Park with a community-created spectacle pageant of larger-than-life puppetry, drama, stilting, dance, fire, song, and music that honors the circle of life by celebrating its seasonal arc of death in the fall. 
The pageant changes each year but always includes a time where members of the audience are invited, through a public naming ceremony, to honor friends and relatives who have passed on. Take time throughout the evening to explore the pageant site and discover installations and altars in the woods. After the performance, stick around for a warming community meal provided by Sisters’ Camelot, and a dance party with Powderhorn mainstays the Brass Messengers. Featuring Ninth Ward artists Mina Leierwood, Junauda Petrus, and Willow Cordes-Ecklund among many, many others.
