Friday Night Events
Ricky Rainbow Beard
This event is sold out.
Friday, October 13 5:30-6:30 p.m.
In October we are focused on MONSTERS! What does a monster look like? Can we really know? Where do you find them? Why do we call them monsters? Using puppets, games, stories, songs, and sketches, we will attempt to answer those questions and hopefully come up with some new questions together :)
The admission fee for the event is $5 per individual or $10 per family. This fee includes access to the Friday night performance and the Book Festival on Saturday. To secure your seats, we recommend reserving your spots early as seating is limited.
Books will be on sale from 5:00 to 6:45, and you'll have the opportunity to meet the authors for book signings during this time. Ricky Rainbow Beard will take the stage for an interactive performance from 5:30 to 6:30. Additionally, participants can screen print their own book festival tote bag with Ms. Reinhardt from 4:30-5:30 while supplies last. The Rocket food truck will be on-site from 4:30 to 6:30, so make sure to come hungry!
