The Montana Natural History Center is holding a “Plants and Skulls Costume Workshop” on Thursday, Oct. 18, in preparation for Missoula’s Festival of the Dead parade.
From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fort Missoula Native Plant Gardens, participants can collect dead plants from the garden and use animal skull specimens for inspiration to create a parade costume. Screen-printing materials will be available to make shirts, capes and flags. (Bring your own fabric.)
Admission is $5. Registration is requested; call 327-0405.
The Festival of the Dead parade is on Friday, Nov. 2, and several other events are planned in advance of it.
