BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 8, 2010) -  What would Halloween be without THE FLAMING LIPS? Certainly nothing as magical and incendiary as their annual Ghouls Gone Wild event held in their hometown of Oklahoma City, that's what. As we fall into the crisp Autumnal night air of the season's darkest yet sweetest holiday, THE FLAMING LIPS ask the question: Want to Participate in This Year's MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS?

This October 23rd, The LIPS will once again host their annual MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS Parade in downtown Oklahoma City's Bricktown district, just a stones throw away from FLAMING LIPS ALLEY.

Last year's third annual Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew LIPS fans from around the globe. Naturally, this year's Supernatural procession will be even more elaborate as festive floats, (in) appropriately adorned cars, walking groups and plenty of surprises along with 1000 strong undead snaking through the streets of Oklahoma City.

Order your costume bundle for this year's parade now in the official Flaming Lips store: www.flaminglips.com/store

Here are a few things you should know before purchasing your bundle:

  1. You can wear your costume from previous years and participate in the parade. If you choose this option you can purchase just the T-shirt and the torch for $20. All the same rules apply, you must be 18 and you can only use the torch that we provide.
  2. 2010 Death March branded skeleton costumes come in 2 sizes: Standard and Large. If you order a STANDARD costume, you will only be able to select between a small or medium t-shirt. If you order a LARGE costume, you will only be able to select between a large or x-large shirt. Each bundle comes with a torch and 2010 March of 1000 Skeletons event t-shirt.
  3. You may only purchase 2 costumes. Every costume must be for a person so we need a person's name and e-mail address attached to each costume. You will receive an email from us if you order 2 so we can obtain the other person in your party's name.
  4. Every skeleton will be carrying a torch with real fire. Anyone in the parade must be 18. Anyone in the parade must sign a waiver.
  5. You will be told at a later date when and where to be so be sure to enter a valid name, email, mailing address and phone number at checkout.
  6. A person must have the ability to march in the parade for up to 2 hours.
