Get ready for hands-on crafts, a photo booth, kids games and of course the classic bashing of the barrel (Nordic pinata). There will also be hosting costume contests with Best Family Costume and Best Kids Costumes. We are excited to see all the fun costumes ideas on this fun day.

Eventbrite - Danish Humor: Fact or Fiction with Henrik Bothe

Mix the gentle humor of Victor Borge, the physical agility of Seinfeld's Kramer, and the cross-generational appeal of Charlie Chaplin and you have some idea of what Henrik Bothe brings to stage. He spins plates, walks on ladders, juggles without using his hands, spins ropes, manipulates fancy hats, and escapes from a straitjacket while riding a unicycle. Henrik has made appearances with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, in Las Vegas at Ceasar's Palace, and on Europe's most widely viewed variety show "Le Plus Grande Cabaret du Monde" in Paris. After an appearance on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" Garrison exclaimed, "Henrik is one of the few jugglers to have ever succeeded in performing on the radio!" Fun for all ages.
