They are immediately thrust into a world of adventure when they discover a mysterious raft and treasure chest at the city pool. The musical features many popular children’s adventure books throughout the centuries and encourages audience participation."

The festivities will come to an explosive finale with Valerie Oliver's " Whirled on a String". Valerie is a championship yo-yo performer. She will demonstrate different styles and tricks of yo-yo feats.
