Keeping kids busy during the summer months is a challenge for parents, but Le Carrousel makes it easy. On Saturdays from 1pm-2pm for the next three weeks, Le Carrousel Puppet Shows brings WonderSpark Puppets to our gorgeous merry-go-round for puppet shows guaranteed to put smiles on faces of all ages. On June 17, the show is The Case of the Missing Kitten, on June 24, it’s The Lion and the Mouse, and the series winds up on July 1 with Fox Fables.

The following week, Le Carrousel StoryTime returns, with Cali Co Cat & Le Carrousel Pals offering a fast-paced hour of fun, including games, songs, and stories that will get you jumpin’ and leapin’. Le Carrousel StoryTime is 1pm–2pm, on Saturdays, July 8 – August 5.  

On Sundays, Le Carrousel Magique also returns, bringing the talented magicians from Monday Night Magic to Le Carrousel for hour-long shows that will amaze and astound. Le Carrousel Magique performances are 1pm–2pm on Sundays through August 6.

On the other side of the Lawn, Justin the Magician returns to the Reading Room to kick off the Reading Rooms Kids season on Saturday, June 24. The series continues each Saturday, 12pm–1pm, through August 19.
