Paperhand Puppet Intervention Auction and Dance Party
Saturday, December 16 7 p.m.
6079 Saxapahaw Swepsonville Rd., Saxapahaw

If you’ve ever wanted or needed a giant larger-than-human puppet, the Paperhand Puppet Intervention Auction and Dance Party is your best bet. First, bid on puppets and pieces of art from past productions. Then, even if you don’t get to bring home a humongous monkey puppet, take part in a free dance party. So it’s win/win.
