    Contact: David R. Mello   508-324-2700, ext. 4   dmello@sailsinc.org
   

Step out with your family for an evening of magic, music and more! The fun starts at 6:00 p.m. with The Magic of Steve Rudolph on our Elm Street stage. Steve's magical illusions are mesmerizing, often funny and always entertaining! Then at 7:00 p.m. you won't want to miss The Blues Crew,  the family singing group from Tiverton, RI, that has been making quite a name for themselves with their fabulous harmony and lively stage presentations. The musical menu incorporates oldies but goodies, country tunes, and Blues Brothers favorites!  In 2015 the group traveled to the Big E in West Springfield to perform for the New England Grange.  The evening will also include face painting, balloon sculpting and a visit from the one-and-only, Melvis, entertainer extraordinaire of the chimpanzwe world! You are invited to spread a picnic blanket and bring along some snacks to this evening of family fun!

In case of rain, the event will take place at the PAL Auditorium on 31 Franklin Street.
