Steve Marshall has been working as a magician for over 30 years. He has performed for everyone from couples at restaurant tables in New York City to an estimated audience of one hundred million people on a TV show in China, giving him the unique ability to tailor his shows to all kinds of audiences. He has created original magic effects for companies like Louis Vutton, Cartier, Universal Studios and the Walt Disney Company. And in August, Marshall made an appearance on Penn and Teller’s Fool Me Show, a popular television show that challenges magic masters.

On Saturday, September 16, we traveled through time starting in 1967 when the Arts Council was founded, making stops at each decade for art projects and family-friendly activities. Food, refreshments and, of course, ice cream & BIRTHDAY CAKE were served, and members of the whole community came to enjoy the free event.
