Parish Picnic at St. Patrick’s Church in Chesterton Indiana

I was pleased to perform last Sunday at the 2012 Parish Picnic at St. Patrick’s Church in Chesterton Indiana. It was a great event with plenty of fun for everyone. There were bounce houses, an inflatable climbing wall, pony rides, face painters, and a DJ. In other words, it was a carnival of colossal proportions! I did my magic show and made balloon animals for all the attendees. The weather was beautiful, sunny and pleasant and the turnout was great! Hearty congratulations to the organizers of the St. Patrick’s Church Parish Picnic. If you miss this one, be sure to attend next year!

Magic meeting in Hobart Indiana

I had fun attending the first meeting of the season of magicians tonight here in Hobart Indiana.

Although I had attended magic meetings in Hobart in the past, I was unaware that magicians were meeting here currently. Indeed, I learned that the magicians have been assembling here in Hobart Indiana at the Krull Tower on a monthly basis for over three years now!

I was impressed by the large turnout of almost 15 magicians from the Northwest Indiana area. The attendees performed a wide variety of magic effects using cards, ropes and other materials. In some cases, they even shared how to perform the effects with other attendees.

One member brought his vintage magic paraphernalia to demonstrate for the group. This included two large “head choppers” which he was happy to demonstrate on the other attendees!

If you are a sincere magic enthusiast, you’re welcome to attend the next meeting. The group has a Facebook page which I will link to as soon as I am updated.

The group meets at 7 PM the third Friday of every month (except for two months in summer) at the Krull Tower in downtown Hobart. See you there!

Rally Sunday at the First United Lutheran Church in Hammond

I was pleased to be a part of a lovely event on September 9, 2012. It was the Rally Sunday outdoor picnic event at the First United Lutheran Church in Hammond Indiana.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a day in late summer. While the weather was threatening and drizzly in Hobart, in Hammond the skies were blue and the temperature was just perfect.

The picnic was a fine event with some great food served inside the church and awnings set up outside on the front lawn. The adults enjoyed socializing and the kids had a great time with sack races and other events. I did my magic show and then made balloon animals for the children.

If you want to have a great time, I encourage you to attend Rally Sunday at the First United Lutheran Church in Hammond next year!
