“TWO DINOSAURS ARE BETTER THAN ONE” PUPPET SHOW
4:30 p.m. Free kids’ puppet show by Taking Hands Theatre. It’s the Jurassic Era, and Allosaurus is the meanest carnivore of them all. First he picks on Stegosaurus, but those spiky scales keep him away. Then it’s Brachiosaurus he’s after– teasing him, and calling him names, and finally playing a trick on him. Good thing Pterodactylus flies by. When dinosaurs stick together, they’re tough enough to stand up to even the meanest dinosaur. Recommended for ages 2-8.
