Building Sessions start at the Snow King’s Play House

The Snow King’s Play House is set to open its doors again to the public.

This January and February, the Snow King’s Play House will host how-to sessions to come in and build masques, lanterns, and giant puppets. The six weeks of creative activities will culminate on Saturday evening February 18, 2012 with the Pageant and Parade event which will surely lead to dancing in the streets.

The times for people who would like to come and take by in the sessions is  on Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m.,  Sundays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. or Wednesdays 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This will be the second year in a row the Snow King’s Play House will be located in the old 180 building on 9th Ave. N. across from the Post Office.

The Snow King’s MasqueParade is an extremely enjoyable community festival that goes back to a time when neighbours joined together to make their own entertainment and bring meaning to their lives through home-made celebrations.

Beginning  with “Return to the Snow King’s Castle” , the communal activities that lead up to the celebration weekend allow us to access the creative part of ourselves that can become dormant in the whirlwind of day-to-day life.  The events will include lantern making, fire spinning, or decorative masque-ing, much pleasure is had as young and old come together for a common purpose… to create some low-tech but, fantastical magic.

Also remember the Masque Costume Ball on Friday, Feb. 17 at the Civic Centre.
