In My Backyard

January 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Saturday, repeating until January 31, 2019

What can you see from your backyard? Join acclaimed family entertainer Fred Penner as he helps answer this question in an interactive program with three original songs (from his ninth album “What a Day”). This show begins with Fred greeting the audience and introducing his helper, Arnie the Arrow. Then it’s off to explore things large and small in Fred’s backyard — from the colors of the rainbow to counting ladybugs on a rose. After looking at the reasons for the seasons, the stars begin to appear as Fred sings “We’re Going to Shine.” Arnie points out the Big Dipper — but wait — it’s really a bear we’re looking at! Following a story about Callisto and Arcus, we snap our fingers to the beat of the planet poem, see some meteors whiz by, and sing along to “The Moon Song.” The show ends with the song “In My Backyard” and Fred’s goodbye to the audience. Children will enjoy story telling, poetry, and song as they learn about the seasons, constellations, planets, meteors and the Moon.
Target audience: young families and the young at heart
