Annual St. Ann’s Puppet Parade Gambols Down Montague Street

The annual St. Ann’s Puppet Parade—Brooklyn Heights’ own version of a kiddie Mardis Gras—made its way down Montague Street to the Promenade at 1 p.m. Monday, filling the streets with clowns, jugglers, 10-foot-tall marionette puppets and the rat-a-tat of percussion, accompanied by hundreds of pre-school, primary, middle and high school students.

Puppets were created in classes led by St. Ann’s teacher Ronnie Asbell at the private school located at 129 Pierrepont Street. (See a cavalcade of photos below.)

And if you’d like to relive past Puppet Parades via BHB coverage (of course you would): 2011 is here, 2010 here and 2009 here.

Check out video footage from BHB pal “Grumpy Bert” here.
