Life Size Walking T-Rex and Adorable Tiny Tigers At Puppetry Arts Festival
The Brooklyn-based non profit theatre Puppetry Arts New York will be hosting the annual Puppetry Arts Festival of Brooklyn inviting the whole community to experience puppet-tastic adventures!!
Located at 4th Street and 5th Avenue of Park Slope near Washington Park, this event will present free puppet shows from 11am-3pm with performances by Yellow Sneakers, James Kent, Arlee Chadwick, Charlie Kanev, and more. The event will also introduce Puppetry Arts New York’s very own Tuffy Tiger as featured in the children’s book series “That’s What Tuffy Tigers Do” performing in his new interactive staged show “Tuffy’s Great Adventure.” HITN and Early Learning Collaborative will host creative fun featuring the animated hit Pocoyo. All along 4th street starting at the corner of 5th Ave will have walk around puppets including alligators, tap-dancing cats, and sing-a-longs for the whole family.
Making this event even MORE exciting will be a special performance by Field Station: Dinosaurs of New Jersey’s Meadowlands. The Dinosaur Troubadour from Field Station: Dinosaurs loves nothing more than sharing his knowledge of dinosaurs through song with children who are as interested in dinosaurs as he is. Plus, you’ll meet an unbelievably life-like roaring, breathing 15-foot juvenile T-Rex. An interactive, entertaining and surprising Paleozoic adventure for everyone!
