Held over for July: Babe, the Sheep Pig

Filed Under:

Held over by popular demand! The fab Adventure Theatre at Glen Echo Park is extending the run of Babe, the Sheep Pig - in conjunction with a couple of special events at the park during the month of July.

July 12-13 is Grandparents' Weekend at Glen Echo. Grandparents and their grandkids who enjoy the Babe production will get a Babe coloring sheet. Ride the carousel and bring a picnic for before or after the show!

July 18-20 is the park's Celebrate Adoption Weekend. Adoptive families are invited to celebrate with orphaned pig Babe as he finds love with a new family. Adventure Theatre will provide a snack of cookies and juice for show-goers, and there will be info from participating organizations The Adoption Center of Washington, the Barker Foundation, and Friends of Russian and Ukranian Adoptions.

July 26 is Squeels on Wheels Petting Zoo at the park from 12 noon to 2:30 p.m. Kids will get to visit goats, sheep, ducks, ponies, donkeys, bunnies, chickens, hens.. and, of course, pigs. (Yes, hand-washing stations will be set up for the kids!) There will be a $5 admission to the petting zoo area.

Our family loves, loves, loves Glen Echo and its puppet and children's theaters. Even if you live in VA, it's worth the trip!
