Christopher Street West is excited to present an interactive workshop on parade decor.
The workshop will be April 23, 2011, at noon, at the LA Gay and Lesbian Center’s McDonald Wright Building.

This free workshop will provide timely ideas for how to have a fabulous float for a few dollars; how to source décor at places like the 99 cents store, and other low-cost options; allowing you to create the next it parade entry.

The workshop will be presented by Ray Pulver.
