THE FLAMING LIPS CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN IN OKLAHOMA CITY
WITH 2ND ANNUAL "MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS"
VOTE FOR THE FLAMING LIPS TO WIN OFFICIAL OKLAHOMA STATE ROCK SONG
As we gently fall into Mother Earth's Autumnal embrace, The Flaming Lips naturally turn their darker thoughts to Halloween, their second favorite holiday. As expected, The Lips will once again host their annual March of 1000 Flaming Skeletons parade on October 25, in downtown Oklahoma City's Bricktown district, just a stones' throw away from Flaming Lips Alley.

Last year's inaugural Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew Lips fans from around the globe. This year's Supernatural procession will be even more incendiary as festive floats, (in)appropriately adorned cars, walking groups, and plenty of surprises along with 1,000-strong undead snaking through the streets of Oklahoma City. Wayne Coyne will lead the evening's proceedings as Master of Ceremonies Extraordinaire.
In order to participate in this year's event, fans must register via the Lips website. Special registration packages are on sale now and include a reserved spot in the "March of 1000 Flaming Skeletons" parade along with a exclusive Death March branded Skeleton costume, a Torch (participants must be at least 18 years of age, in sound/stable mental faculty, and agree to participate in a safe, responsible manner as we're talking about actual hot flaming fire here), and a super limited-edition event t-shirt only available to participants. It's going to be an unholy blast!
In other Lips related activities, The Official Oklahoma Rock Song Advisory Panel has selected ten finalist songs to represent the great State of Oklahoma.
