The second annual Million Puppet Parade brought puppets and marionettes of all shapes and sizes to the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica this Sunday.

Both amateurs and professionals brought hand puppets, finger puppets and more to the march just south of Wilshire Boulevard. The all-ages, free event concluded with a raffle giving out gift certificates to coffee shops and more, including a grand prize of four tickets to go behind the scenes at the Jim Henson Company’s Hollywood lot.

See both creepy and cute photos of the puppets and parade above.
