We have no regular story times the week of Thanksgiving, but have we got a special story time treat planned for you instead!
Have you ever watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? How about enjoyed Red Wing’s very own time-honored Thanksgiving tradition, the Holiday Stroll? Have you ever wondered about who got the idea for all those amazing puppets in the Macy’s parade, or asked how the Holiday Stroll got started?
Then head to the library with your kiddos on Tuesday, November 20 at 10:30 AM for a special story time with Megan and Cyd, Lindsey from the Goodhue County Historical Society, and Anna from ArtReach! First we’ll read the fabulous Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade by Melissa Sweet. Lindsey will then share some super cool history of our Holiday Stroll, and kids and families will be invited to share their own photos and memories of the Holiday Stroll. After Holiday Stroll show and tell, Anna will show us all how to make a balloon puppet craft to take home!
Sound like a fun way to kick off Thanksgiving week? We think so! If you’re planning to attend, please stop by the library or give us a call to let us know to plan on your kiddos so Anna can bring enough art supplies for everyone. See you there!
