The Museum at Campbell River is celebrating 30 years of puppet theatre this summer.

To mark the milestone, the museum is offering an open invitation for any and all to join in the festivities at a Puppet Party on Tues., July 26.

In spirit of the anniversary, the museum is performing its two original puppet plays – Fred Nunns Goes to Comox and Fred Nunns’ Pumpkins at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. respectively. There will be a craft after each play, as well as snacks and cake.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating our 30th anniversary of Puppet Theatre here at the museum,” says Sandra Parish, museum executive director.

“Year after year our talented summer students have delighted audiences as they bring a host of local characters to life. I look forward to the party to celebrate this milestone and encourage you to stop by and share your favourite puppet memories.”

Admission to the puppet shows is $2.
