There is no admission fee but we will have a calabash for free will offerings to help offset expenses. The Monkey who oversees the Calabash bowl has been taught to laugh, clap and squeal approval only if a donation is made. The bigger the donation, the bigger the show he puts on. That’s Show Biz.
Children of all ages, from 2 to 102, are welcome. Calling all individuals, families, schools, churches, home schooled and youth groups. Please call Yona Chock at 234-5262 to reserve tickets as seating is limited. You will be seated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
