Giant Puppet Parade auction

There was an auction held here recently at the Arts Lounge to benefit the Giant Puppet Parade project. Every year art students, children from the orphanage and volunteers organize a parade of giant puppets they created. It's one of those unique events here in Siem Reap.

Establishments, generous people and artists gave out artworks, gift certificates, and other stuff for the auction. Up for grabs were hotel stays, dinners, yoga sessions, cooking classes, market tour, paintings, wines, etc and etc.

We installed one of the puppets in the Arts Lounge to give it a chic mood. They raised a sizable amount after the auction and it will benefit greatly the project to continue every year.
