A collection of art heads was available for viewing in a back corner of the fair. These heads would be worn by various performers at random times during the parade, where each performer made his/her big head stride tall by use of stilts.

The big heads were on display under a wooden arbor. Many had words emblazoned on their chests. Alas but wrinkles made some illegible.
