NEW YORK (AP) - Times Square will get even more crowded on Monday - and filled with even more fuzzy creatures - for World Puppetry Day, part of a national celebration for those who give life to animated objects.

Professional and amateur puppeteers and their puppets are invited for the celebration, joined by puppets from other Broadway and Off-Broadway shows past and present, including the profane monsters from “Avenue Q.” A huge photo will be taken to mark the event.

Puppet parties are scheduled across the country, including at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, a 12-hour puppet building party in Seattle and a performance of “Peter and the Wolf” in West Liberty, Iowa.

World Puppetry Day was first celebrated in 2003 and was begun by Iranian puppeteer Javad Zolfaghari.
