Over 300 people came to the Main Branch of the Grand Rapids Public Library on Saturday, 11/23/13 for Santa’s Workshop. Many came directly from the Art Van Santa Claus Parade to warm up and have some Holiday fun! Children made Christmas trees out of recycled Christmas Cards and Christmas stockings out of paper, yarn, and crayons.
The Edelweiss Choir entertained the crowd with songs from the Sound of Music. A family four pack of tickets to see The Sound of Music at the Civic Theatre was given away. This family musical will run from November 15 – December 15, 2013 at the Civic Theatre.
Broadway on the Grand brought us a snapshot of the Cirque Dreams Holidaze Show that will be playing December 26-29, 2013 at Devos Performance Hall. This astonishing performance by a member of Cirque using hula hoops had the audience cheering and clapping.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus came all the way from the North Pole to visit our library. While Santa Claus talked with lots of good little girls and boys, Mrs. Claus read a holiday story and decorated cookies with children young and old..
Happy Holidays to you all!
