Frontier Days at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Horsing Around at the Center for Puppetry Arts


The Center for Puppetry Arts is gearing up for Frontier Days (April 3rd & 10th) to celebrate their current Family Series show, Paul Bunyan and the Tall Tale Medicine Show.  

From the website:  

You’re invited to a historical hoedown honoring American heroes that spin tales taller than a ten-gallon hat! Enjoy twangy tunes as you hear all about how Paul Bunyan and his devoted friend, Babe the Blue Ox, invent logging; how Hekeke saves her tribe from a people-eating ogre; how John Henry becomes a steel-driving man; and how Pecos Bill becomes King of the Cowboys.

Calling all pioneers, cowboys, cowgirls, lumberjacks, and lumberjills! Lookin’ to have a rootin’ tootin’ hoot of a time? During the run of Paul Bunyan & the Tall Tale Medicine Show, join us on one of the first two Saturdays in April (April 3rd & 10th) from 11am-3pm for “Frontier Days” at the Center for Puppetry Arts!  Take part in some of the fun activities like Pecos Bill’s Horseback Museum Expedition, in which you can explore all that our Museum has to offer on stick-horse back, picture yourself as a pioneer in the Frontier Photo Op, or play the Tall Tale Name Game to find out what your settler pseudonym will be. Costumes are encouraged so tie on your bonnet, find a cowboy hat, or suit up as a lumberjack and come on down!
Activities included with ticket purchase.
