Lily Silly Puppet Show 

1 PM

A puppet show from all ages, Aunt Irene's show is filled with music and fantastic variety acts. See a singing sloth, the mysterious Linked Lizard, Rosita the flamenco dancer and Wanda the Wizard. Things seem to go awry as a needy witch casts spells to compete with acts and musical numbers. Live music by classically trained guitarist Matthew Ocone.  Songs in many languages.

Lily Silly Pupplet Workshop

1:45 PM

Stick around after the puppet show for a puppet-making workshop! Make your own unique hand puppet to take home. You'll use fabric, beads, buttons, yarn, markers and hot glue to give your puppet a personality too.
