ALADDIN’S MARCH MAGIC COMES TO NEON MUSEUM, SATURDAY, MARCH 14, 5 TO 7 P.M.
The Neon Museum Boneyard and Boneyard Park will provide a magical backdrop for a very special family event in March. The museum will host Aladdin’s March Magic on Saturday, March 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is designed for preschoolers through third graders, accompanied by a parent or guardian, and the cost is $5 per person; limited space is available.
During the event, the Neon Boneyard “Genie” will perform a dramatic reading of the traditional version of the Aladdin folktale in the Boneyard Park. After story time, participants will make a magic “flying carpet” with paper and markers before learning to “fly” their carpet around the park.
Next, everyone will “fly” their carpets into the Neon Boneyard in search of Aladdin’s lamp (rumored to be lost in Las Vegas). When they find the lamp, all will gather around to enjoy magic tricks performed by the Genie, before learning some magic tricks themselves. Attendees will be encouraged to take photos beside Aladdin’s lamp and, finally, will receive a magical “wish jewel” to take home, along with their magic carpets.
Reservations are recommended as space is limited. Latecomers cannot be accommodated due to the sequential nature of the program. To make reservations, go to www.neonmuseum.org or call (702) 387-6366.
