Outstanding art work and the wares of skilled artisans will be displayed on the main floor, and on the stage we will have three one-hour wildlife shows with live birds, reptiles, and animals each day. There will be an area with crafts and games for children, and the cafeteria will have food and beverages available. Celebrated storyteller John Porcino will provide entertainment throughout the day.
