San Leandro Heritage Faire

Last Saturday, I had the good fortune of performing at the San Leandro Heritage Faire. My show was at 11:30 and the second item on the agenda. When they started the program at 11:00 a.m. there were very few people and I was a bit worried about the sparse attendance. But the people arrived and soon we had a healthy crowd. I performed my illusion show but it was a short program of 30-35 minutes. The conditions were difficult because it was outdoors and there was a very heavy breeze but show turned out to be a big hit.

There were several kids and adults and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun. It was a long drive for me and I was glad my wife and my daughter Janani joined me. In fact, Janani participated in the show as my assistant and I suspended her in the air. Everyone loved that effect and many others too including Rocky Raccoon and Hippity Hop rabbits. I ended the show with the production of a huge bush of flowers and thus wrapped up another good show. Mary Lee Barr , the librarian there was very sweet to us and super organized - the whole function went off without a hitch!
