Bob Baker Day 2023 Postponed Due to Weather
New date: April 30th, 2023.

"As you may have seen by now, this weekend is looking wet! Currently there are showers forecasted for Thursday-Saturday, with chances that it will continue even through Sunday.

Though we'd love nothing more than to take on a "Show Must Go On!" attitude, we know that Bob Baker Day would greatly suffer from a rainy and muddy day- not to mention the damage potential for our priceless, delicate puppets. "
This year’s FREE festival at Los Angeles State Historic Park on February 25th, will feature Bob Baker marionettes and Pinocchio, in addition to an incredible lineup of special guests throughout the day. Among the many fantastic acts at Bob Baker Day are David Arquette as Bozo the Clown, clowns Jozo Bozo & NüNü, King Kukulele, Joe Selph & Rene’s Marionettes, Pacific Opera Project, Randal Metz, Dynasty Typewriter, Hollow Trees, and more!

Oy, not the best way to teach or connect or really anything about the Holocaust.
"Filtering the darkest, most dramatic period of modern Jewish history, The Jewish Dog offers a view of the Holocaust through the eyes of a canine unusually fascinated by human affairs. When events separate him from his Jewish owners, he is adopted by a Nazi family and employed by the SS as a military dog allowing Caleb to witness firsthand the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust."
