The Legend of the Poinsettia - Jan 2022 - In-person show - Cancelled due to snow

Legend of the Poinsettia is based on the story of little Maria did not have a gift for the Baby Jesus. All she could find was a handful of weeds...but, because she gave from her heart, the weeds turned into beautiful red flowers. This is the story of the Poinsettia, the Christmas plant. The Legend of the Poinsettia – a story based on the Mexican legend of a pure hearted young girl who discovers the true spirit of giving. Unable to offer a gift of material value, she picks a handful of weeds that magically transform into brilliant crimson flowers and thus the custom of giving poinsettias during the holidays is born. The Latin Ballet’s production of The Legend of the Poinsettia elegantly portrays the Hispanic traditions of the season. Dances and music demonstrate cultural celebrations with aguinaldos, gaitas, rumbas and plenas. The spiritual reverence of the season is combined with the joy and laughter of the traditional festivities of dance and song.

Henry Meets a Honey Bee teaches about honey bees, pollination and the roles of bees within the hive. On the other side, Honey teaches Beekeeping uses realistic images and a story-like point of view to guide the reader about the basics of beekeeping. After the reading, kids will be able to ask questions of the author and another beekeeper. The kids will start with an entirely constructed hive and do hands-on activities related to the beekeeping book.  First, they will learn about safety clothing and tools that beekeepers use. They will take the hive apart and see the inside with the frames and wax. This will teach children about how honey bees build their homes in a manufactured structure and how we, as beekeepers, take care of the honey bees.
