Almonte: Puppets Up!

From Ottawa Start:
This year, It’s Magic! is the theme as the Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival celebrates its 8th season. On August 11 and 12, Puppets Up! will once again present a two-day festival of wonder and amazement as ten professional puppet troupes perform in our family-friendly tented theatres.
In addition to the festival’s world-class puppeteers, Magician Elliott Smith will headline an outstanding line-up of magicians and street entertainers who will mystify and enthrall you! (Elliott is the real deal – he’s received the Order of Merlin Shield, a very prestigious award given by the International Society of Magicians [sic].) He’ll be joined by festival favourites the Balcony Puppeteers (think Sesame Street’s Statler and Waldorf) and other artists like musician and children’s entertainer, Jake Differ, and Matt Ficner, whose fantastic animatronic robot puppets are often seen zooming up Mill Street.
