San Juan Island Children’s Festival
Island Recreation sponsors the San Juan Island Children’s Festival each year. I last performed for this event in 2004. Sally, Recreation Director, has tried to have me back several times and the date didn’t work out until this year.
The theme is “Leap off the Page” and encourages kids to pick up a book and read. So, it was a natural for me to perform my Reading Magic show that uses a lot of characters and situations for popular books. And of course, I included plenty of just-for-fun magic, too.
The San Juan Island Library had a gigantic replica of “Where the Wild Things Are”. Thanks to librarian Melina Lagios for taking the fun photo.
The weather was beautiful and taking the ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor was very a pleasure. I’ll do festival shows all day in weather like this!
