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.

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.

  • The addition of Champions League adds authenticity to the game,
    but it’s disappointing that there are still missing many clubs.
    Additionally, with the energy of your latest and contemporary technology, person can watch the football match with all the
    enable of working with the facility of world-wide-web.
    Online games are not only easy to access but you can play them any time you wish to.

    • Thanks, Hack.

      I almost wrote an article about this myself, but its off topic from Twin Cities Family Fun and I’m still not sure how ethical it is — even if it is technically legal.

  • My parents had offerred to purchase a wagon for our LO (little one) for her birthday and at the time I thought it would just take up space in the garage.� Why would I use a wagon when I have a perfectly good stroller.�

    • Hi Beth:

      The puppet wagons don’t require you to purchase a wagon, you just show up at the park and watch a puppet show out of a wagon. If you have a wagon, you could walk to the park with it and your kids could sit in the wagon while you watch.

      However, I agree with you. Everyone insisted we NEEDED a wagon, but a stroller is usually easier to handle and we believe in making kids start walking young. It’s just another thing on our lawn.
