The biggest event of this year’s Puppetry Festival takes place in Fitzgerald’s Park tomorrow, with all welcome.

The Puppet Picnic is the highlight of Dowtcha Puppet’s annual festival, which has been running since Tuesday, July 31, and and ends tomorrow.

Groups and families are invited to join the other astronauts at this year’s lunar themed picnic, nicely timed to coincide with July’s 50th anniversary of the moon landings.

Attendees can Help Jimmy and Serena save the day in ‘The Story of the Rubbish Monster’, create their own moon creatures at the puppet-making workshops, listen to live music from the brass band, and take giant steps during the Puppet Parade.

The event runs from 11am until 3pm, and families are being encouraged to bring a picnic and make a day of it (and possibly pack an umbrella; just in case).
