2019 Nyack Halloween Parade Float:

Día de Muertos 

The float we designed for the Nyack Halloween Parade in 2019 was based on the Mexican celebration of The Day of The Dead.

The Float was designed by Art Collective members John R Gilbert and Kristen Memmelo. The entire collective worked together to create the thousands of paper flowers that make up the skull on the float as well as the canopy.  

Sandra Bandes, a Renaissance Faire make-up artist and Art Collective member did the majority of the face-painting.

Costumes were designed by the wearers.

The “Dancing Skeleton” Puppet was constructed and operated by John R Gilbert
