Fall Event 2012

Mike Anderson, Storyteller for Halloween Festival

Cuddle up close, dearies.  The tales Mike Anderson spins of ghosts and other strange, unexplained events are not for the faint hearted or the preschool child.  On Saturday, October 27 at 8:00 p.m., you’ll have a chance to prove what you’ve been saying about how much you like scarey stories.  Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and sit yourself down in Heroes’ Park to attend Anderson’s storytelling and music concert.  We’ll see how brave you are. Heroes’ Park is  located between the parish council building and the parish library at 830  North Alexander Avenue in Port Allen.  The moon will be almost full on October 27, just the right atmosphere for imagining  the sound of rattling bones, the sight of a dancing dulcimer, and tales that will leave you spinning around. 

Mike Anderson is one of the most versatile folk performers in the Midwest.  He is an outstanding mountain dulcimer player, along with being an accomplished storyteller.  The combination of music, storytelling, and humor has made Anderson one of the most sought after performers, workshop leaders, and speakers in the Midwest. He has earned numerous Parent Choice Awards for his musical recordings and is also an award-winning educator and author. He is the featured performer for many folk festivals, including the National Mountain Music Festival and is an instructor for the mountain dulcimer workshops held annually at Appalachian State University, West Carolina University, and The Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas.


Halloween Magic Show

Amazing Tricks and Treats
October 27 at 5:30 p.m.

There’s no doubt about it.  Chris Miller is a five star magician.  His tricks and illusions are amazing.   But he does more than amaze his audiences, he entertains them with his rapid fire jokes that keep them laughing as well.   This is family fun for all ages.

Miller’s magic show will be in the Youth Services Department at the library.
