Tomorrow morning, June 1, 2011, at 10am, the Shops at Wiregrass (Wiregrass Mall) in Wesley Chapel (Pasco County, Florida), just north of Tampa, presents Drum Magic!
Bring the kids for about an hour of interactive hand drumming. Miss Heather leads them faster, slower, louder, softer, “spelling” their names and pounding out the syllables of other words. It’s great fun, and subversively good for their coordination and musical senses!
Wiregrass Wednesdays is a weekly event at 10am. Tomorrow is Drum Magic. Another time, Mr. Tommy is playing the guitar and singing great kid songs. Other weeks bring a magician, the Gator Crusader, puppets, storytelling… all free!
For almost two years, I (Tony the Balloon Guy) have been there every Wednesday morning, making my fun balloon animals, flowers, swords, hearts, vehicles, etc. Face Painter Phyllis is there, too. There is even a bounce house!
Currently, the mall is having a food drive, so if you can remember to bring some non-perishable food items to share, that would be so cool. But it’s not mandatory!
See you in the morning in the parking structure behind Macy’s, where we are safe from Florida’s blazing sun!
Have a fun day!
