Join us outside in Buhl Community Park for Puppets in the Park with Felicia Cooper. From 10:30 am – 12:30 pm we’ll carefully craft puppets out of everyday materials. Then at 1:00 pm Felicia will perform Cosmicomics, a celestial puppet show about a boy in love with the moon and his efforts to live there. The show is about 15 minutes long and recommended for kids 5-12. Plus you can bring the puppet you made to the performance to be featured in the show.

  • 10:30 am – 12:30 pm: Puppet workshop
  • 1:00 pm- 1:30 pm: Performance of Cosmicomic
