Livingston Manor's annual Trout Parade, a mountainous version of Coney Island's famous Mermaid Parade, marches through the Main Street of the Sullivan County hamlet tomorrow with giant puppets, people dressed in costumes that evoke "The Wizard of Oz" (this year's theme), and, of course, the parade's signature trout float, held on sticks by dedicated marchers. (See above.)
The parade begins at 1 p.m., but the fun starts at 11 a.m. with a street fair and live entertainment and continues after the parade with concerts by acts like janturan, a performance in the park of the NACL Theatre's Weather Project and an after party at the Catskill Brewery.
