Join us April 27, 2013 from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. for Fun, Prizes, Inspirational Art Ideas, Puppet Performances and Certificates at the D.D, and Velma Davis Education and Visitor Center, Mill Creek MetroParks, Youngstown, Ohio. This Center is a part of the beautiful Fellows Riverside Gardens. We will be in the Weller Gallery at the Davis Center next to the Garden Café. This event will take place in conjunction with The Children’s Book Festival: Plant the Seed to Read. This year’s subtitle is “Dig into Reading”.

Six of the larger-than-life We Have Poipus Puppets together with a costumed character made to look like a puppet will be available for performances of a short play titled “Green Tidings!” Performances are scheduled for 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 1:30 and 2:30. We will be seeking volunteers ages 6 and older from the audience to operate puppets to a pre-recorded soundtrack.

There will also be a Trash to Treasure Art Display of projects made from recyclables and non-recyclables.

The Children’s Book Festival and Puppet Performances are free and open to the public.
