9 - Children's Storytime and Sing Along with Peter Mader at Falling Star Concessions
This week's story is Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger
Abiyoyo is a story based on a South African folktale. After being
“ostracized” from town for playing too many tricks on people, a
magician and his son use their unique talents to save the town.
When a giant named Abiyoyo comes to the village, a magician’s
son uses his ukulele to get Abiyoyo to dance so fast that he falls
down, and then the magician makes the giant disappear! 

10-12 Live music by Green Flamingos 
Playing what they refer to as "acoustified rock and pseudo-electrified folk." Consisting primarily of guitar, ukulele, cajon, and great vocals, with upright bass, drums, and piano thrown in here and there, The Green Flamingos play many different varieties of music, from classic rock and oldies to current rock and pop, from classic country to folk and Americana. By taking familiar songs and transforming them into a distinct and unique acoustic-Americana style, along with young ears, The Green Flamingos are perfect for an audience of any age.
