BALDWIN HILLS FEST 2011

Tri-Pi, LA Audubon, and California State Parks worked together to produce the Second Annual Baldwin Hills Fest on Saturday June 18, 2011 from 10am-3pm. This year's event included two giant snail puppets and a California King Snake puppet manipulated by 7 people! The Kids' Crafts Area, sponsored by Folk Art Everywhere, a project of the Craft and Folk Art Museum, made windsocks out of recycles materials, and the LA Puppet Guild gave kids a chance to make puppet butterflies. It was indeed a wonderful day in the park! Sadly, this will be the last Baldwin Hills Fest that Tri-Pi administrates for the Overlook. Many thanks to all who participated!
