Do you enjoy getting your face painted? What about puppet shows? Add in lots of kites and you have the Zilker Kite Festival. The Zilker Park Kite Festival is one of Austin’s best-known annual events. Held on the first Sunday of March, it is the kick-off to the hundreds of springtime activities in Austin and TAP is going to be there.
This Sunday, March 6th, we will be performing two puppet shows and face painting with the Theatre Action Project staff and our many TAP volunteers. This year we will be performing two shows: Follow Pascal and “The Red Balloon” on their adventure though the streets of Paris in “The Red Balloon” by Albert Lamorisse, and Join “Swimmy” as he journey’s to show his friends that — with ingenuity and team work—they can overcome any danger in “Swimmy” by Leo Lionni.
Once at the Zilker Park, please look for the Theatre Action Project signs leading you to our area and a white tent with walls. You’ll also see signs for “The Red Balloon” puppet show. An estimated 30,000 people will attend this fun Austin tradition and we would be ecstatic if you would stop by and enjoy this great event with us! We hope to see you there!
