Last year we had some fun new exhibits, and they will be back; Cross-Cut-Saw demonstration, and Wild-Fire Safety demonstration. In this colorful 30-foot long nylon inflatable salmon tent, a variety of forest themed stories keep everyone entertained. Children and parents are invited to dress in colorful costumes of birds, insects, wolves, and other creatures and “fly, hop, crawl, swim or walk” in a short parade through the Wheeler Pavilion prior to storytelling.
