The light in giant puppets

Children from Together for Cambodia were busy this week making puppets in preparation for Siem Reap’s 10th annual Giant Puppet Parade.

The puppets were created during three weeks of workshops with children from local schools and organisations, and are made in the style of ancient Chinese dragon puppets.

The creations, which will be lit from inside, highlight some of Cambodia’s endangered and native species, and will also include a monkey in honour of the Lunar Year of the Monkey.

Thousands of people are expected to watch as the popular puppet parade wind its way through the city’s streets tonight, starting from 7pm.
