Throughout December, at various locations around the city, aspiring artists and puppeteers of all ages will have the opportunity to design, build, and paper-mâché the magical, moving creatures featured in the Highmark First Night Pittsburgh 2020 Parade.

Artist, educator, and puppet maker Cheryl Capezzuti, who owns Studio Capezzuti and is the Creative Director of the celebration’s signature Parade, will lead their creation. Capezzuti has been a part of the Parade for the past twenty years and loves connecting with people as they make art for this wonderful Pittsburgh tradition.
