The South Sound Reading Foundation and Capital Playhouse's Page to Stage program will hold the Imagination Celebration this month. The reading foundation seeks sponsors for the event.
The event is scheduled for June 19 and is to feature several performances and hands-on activities for more than 500 children, youth and families.
This free community event will include a magic show by Jeff Evans, a puppet show by DougLuce Productions, and well-known award-winning children and young adult authors, including Kirby Larson, Bonny Becker, Carmen Bernier-Grand, Dia Calhoun, Patrick Jennings, Deb Lund and Nikki McClure. Activities are planned by the Hands on Children’s Museum; Timberland Regional Library; Capital Playhouse’s Page to Stage Program; South Sound Reading Foundation’s Free Book, Book Van; Paws to Read; Barnes & Noble; and BlockFest.
The event will be held on Ninth Avenue, between Franklin and Adams and behind the Olympia Timberland Regional Library, according to the reading foundation. Before the outdoor festival starts at 1 p.m., it will be preceded by a PB&J Luncheon, held at the Abigail Stuart House.
