For the past two weeks, more than 20 local kids and a handful of adults have been set up in the upstairs of the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center painting and putting together paper-maché masks and costumes for their one-time performance on Friday night.


The kids will be dressing up in the costumes and walking on stilts for the puppet pageant taking place as a part of this weekend's Continental Divide Festival.
