Roseville Puppet Wagon
June 18 – August 8, 2013
Consider the Roseville Puppet Wagon a fun excuse to explore a few new parks this summer. The traveling show – literally, the puppet theater is built onto the back of a pickup – visits three Roseville-area parks each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the summer months. The performances are usually less than 20 minutes in length and include back-to-back classic folk tales that most children will readily recognize.
I brought my kids to an 11:30 a.m. show at Roseville’s Central Park Victoria West last summer and it was super simple to sit them at the picnic table for lunch while they watched. Park staff passed out bubbles and allowed the kids to climb up into the truck-bed theater afterwards to try their hand at puppetry.
If the evening is a more convenient time for your family to enjoy the park together, the Puppet Wagon also makes appearances at the many summer Discover Your Parks events. Held from 6:30 – 8 p.m., families can gather at a variety of Roseville-area parks after dinner and finish the day with themed activities, crafts, refreshments and more.
Because the Puppet Wagon is always on the move, be sure to check the summer schedule before planning a park date around a show.
