Today is the second and last day of the Puppets Up festival in Almonte, and this is just to note that if you’re considering it you should head on down.
The kid and her Daddy went yesterday and had a great time, seeing two shows and the parade. They went to see a third show but the kid was tired out by that point. But something pretty great happened during the wait for the parade to start.
You see, the kid got to pick out a new friend yesterday morning:
And while they were lined up down the sidewalk waiting for the parade to start they noticed a little boy who was quite taken with Reginald, so the kid started performing for him.
How awesome is that? She took everything she had seen – plus all the practice that she and Daddy get at home with our friend the King and Cookie Monster – and she decided to entertain another little kid. I don’t think the organizers could ask for a better result.
And if you do head out today, I hear the Puppet Tamer is a must see.
