Are your ready for this? A four foot high young farmer named Olaf will be appearing at the Winona Steamboat Days on Saturday, June 18th. In actuality, it is Homeward Bound Theatre Company presenting one of Alfy’s “World of Robotic Puppets“.
This funfilled life size puppet will be roaming the carnival, charming everyone from two to a hundred and two. Olaf will be making his joyous appearance to unsuspecting visitors to the carnival in the evening. Through the “magic” of radio control, this lifelike puppet will be visiting and sharing jokes and quips with unsuspecting car show goers. Alfy’s “World of Robotic Puppets” received praises across the United States with appearances in fairs from the Northern reaches of Minnesota to the southern boards of Arizona. They have also been featured at the Mall of America, St. Paul Saint’s Baseball, benefits, and numerous trade shows, and events for seniors and youth. Their version of an Irish leprechaun has been the hit of the various St. Patrick’s parades. The Winona Steamboat Days runs daily from June 15th through June 19th.
