Sauder Village will celebrate L. Frank Baum and his literary works “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and “Mother Goose in Prose” on June 28-29 as part of the 2019 Author Days events.
The event will include a variety of hands-on activities, special demonstrations, and free admission for anyone dressed in a Wizard of Oz or Mother Goose themed costume. Guests are encouraged to be creative, dress in costume, and get involved in the celebration.
They will have an opportunity to build a tin man in the Tin Shop, look into a glass ball at Burlington Glass Works, build a scarecrow, learn about tornadoes in the Garden Shed, make Dorothy’s miniature basket at the Basket Shop, visit the Oz photo booth, head over to the print shop to make a wicked witch bookmark, and visit Little Pioneers Homestead for a day full of Mother Goose activities.
There will also be “Kansas” farm activities including goat and cow milking, pig feeding, corn shelling, and farm animals to meet.
“Our Author Day events have been a great success, and we look forward to having guests of all ages join us again this year to celebrate reading and learning while enjoying many fun, hands-on activities,” said Kim Krieger, Media Relations.
On June 29, guests can also attend a special Melodies on Main Street Concert featuring the talents of Bob Ford.
