Friday: SPECIAL GUEST DAY - Our guest performers this week are the amazing team at ADVENTURE SANDWICH, they’ll amaze you with their singing and cardboard crafting that you’ll have to see to believe. Approximately 30 minutes.
(Note: Page Turner Adventures originally planned a virtual zoo visit and a visit to the workshop of a Lion King puppet master, Jim Hammond. Jim, unfortunately, was ill this week and couldn’t make it. We hope to catch up with him later in the summer. And our Zoo plans also fell through due to unforeseen circumstances. We’ll also try to arrange something at a later date).
