The Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut will once again offer fall community puppet-building program to design and build life-size and over-life-size puppets for a new Connecticut Pollinator Pageant to be performed at the Celebrate Mansfield Festival in Downtown Storrs. Participants will be invited to perform in the community Connecticut Pollinator Pageant at the 16th annual Celebrate Mansfield Festival on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m. The theme for this year's Ballard Institute community pageant for the Celebrate Mansfield Festival is—Pollinators! Connecticut pollinators are not simply honeybees and bumblebees. In addition, there are scores of native flies, bees, butterflies, bats, and beetles that make important contributions to our lives by pollinating crops. Working together, participants will create over-life-sized masks and puppets representing their favorite pollinators. No experience is necessary to participate, but registration is requested. Participants can come for one or both days and are not required to stay for the entire time. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. To register for the workshop, or if you require accommodation to participate, contact the Ballard Institute at bimp@uconn.edu or (860) 486-8580.
