There is so much fun to be had out in our local communities. There is something to do every day of the week during the summer. The libraries have programming all summer for Bockawocky.  You can find out more information about all the different summer reading programs we found for Twin Cities families. Don’t forget to explore your own community for fun in your local parks where you can find music or maybe even the puppet wagon.

This post is sponsored by Open Window Theatre. Enjoy The Wizard of Oz and Spark Theatre + Dance’s  The Supercilious Ways of Walter Wading in a combined family friendly show.
