Last month was National Puppet Month. This Month, the Chicagoland Puppetry Guild celebrates its 50th anniversary. And because there are so many puppets in Blood and Flowers it seems appropriate to mention one of the best things you can find in Chicago — Puppet Bike!
Puppet bike can show up anywhere at any time. I’ve stood on street corners in the middle of the winter, feeding coins to the dancing rabbits and lions. I’ve seen them in the fall at Banned Books events. I hear they were the featured performers at a corporate Christmas Party. It’s like they come out of a secret mist and suddenly appear right in front of you. They’re wonderful!
