This was from last weekend.
Excerpt from Saturday's 40 minute stage demo:
Joseph Wu's Usagi Yojimbo:
This kid Reilly had some of the most delightful reactions and facial expressions while playing with the polypopagon. All 3 kids were pretty funny with the model hitting themselves in the face:
There was a new magician (not on the schedule) who performed on Sunday. A 17 year-old kid, I think he was the nephew of one of the puppeteers. I happened to film part of his magic crane act after I heard him make mention of one of the 3 pictures on cards he had for a volunteer to choose from, was that of a paper crane. I guessed that the tsuru would be the forced card and anticipated what he was about to do in time to film it:
Another paper mischief from him here.
Allen and Wayne are the regular magicians who come annually. Wayne plugged origami in his dollar bill transformation trick:
Allen thought his performance was on Sunday (it was supposed to be on Saturday) and closed out the Sunday indoor stage shows. So we had 3 magicians in one day!
Marti Reis came out to help me on Saturday; and on Sunday, I had Pam Miike. Slow traffic, but still had fun.
