A little late for the cooling program isn’t it?

PHOTOS!

Date: July 10, 2024
Program: Mike Klee’s Big Balloon Show

Filling all those balloons! Is he full of hot air? Nope, he’s got a handy balloon-blowing machine for that. He’s just full of ideas about twisting balloons into a plethora, a multitude, lots, of shapes.

By his gregarious persona, the kids are charmed and they promptly shoot up their hands to volunteer to play parts in his fun dramas. How about Old McDonald? Who wants to come up? Okay, here’s a guy who will be a cow. Mike crowns him with a balloon-shaped cow head and gets him to milking. Then a sheep, a duck, an arm-flapping chicken, a pig, a horse, all with balloon headpieces. To everyone singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm, they act out their movements. So fun!

More hands shoot up for Baby Shark, doo doo doo doo! Grandma and grandpa shark, the family of sharks with headdresses of gray balloons and white teeth swimming in a circle to the music. So cute.

Loud phone ringing. Where’s the phone! There it is. Corn on the cob to his ear. Hello? Yes, I’m ready for some corny jokes. I’m all ears. Ah shucks! Then Knock, Knock jokes. Who’s there? Cow. Cow who? No, no. Cow go moo.

The rabbit, a live rabbit, white with black ears and black around his eyes, perfectly sedate on the podium. He’s put in a bucket with vegetables for a picnic, but later he has disappeared! Some dastardly evil one has stolen him, but never fear, Mike brings a rescue with more actors.

A dainty ballerina, fitted with tiara and wings, performed gracefully with proper mien, whispered the secrets needed to find the rabbit.

Mike has been twisting balloons into animals for so long that, yes, he could twist them behind his back, and he did. Every child went home with a shaped balloon. I know they will want to see him again next year.
