Performers & Activities
Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences worldwide for over 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. An Edinburgh Fringe favorite, he has sold out there for the last twelve years. Louis explores the breathtaking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles to rocket bubbles, tornado bubbles to flying saucer bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages.
STORY CLUB OF NEVADA COUNTY
Promoting literacy and the love of reading, Story Club gives away good quality used children’s books at events in Western Gateway Park and at the Nevada County Fair and other events at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. “Presenting books and stories to children is one of the ways that we as a community can encourage children to love books and reading, two important skills necessary to become a lifelong learner.”
All children attending a Story Club event are given one or more books to take home. Usually several books are taken by each family. Our goal is to provide a place where families can bring a stack of books and leave with a stack of books. This way a child can keep a book as long as they wish but they can also exchange books they have finished with once a month. Songs, stories, poetry and choosing books are some of the activities that occur at a Story Club event.
