About 100 people participated in the Imagination Celebration event at the Buena Park Library District on Saturday, May 13, 2006. Disney Entertainment Presents gave a very interesting and informative “behind the scenes” look at the magic created by Disney Entertainment Productions when they prepare floats for the various parades around the country, including the annual Tournament of Roses Parade and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Afterwards all the children took part in a hands-on Monster Mash Workshop where, with the help of professional artist Margie Zuliani, they made their own MONSTER! A number of the creative creatures are on display in the Volunteer Guild’s Bookstore on the 2nd floor of the Library, located at 7150 La Palma Ave, between Western and Knott. The monsters will be “corralled” for about a month here, so come by and see how creative these children really are!

“We found out that a number of participants in our workshop had visited other Imagination Celebration events this same day, in the morning, so this really was their own “Imagination on the Move” weekend!” said Kathleen Wade, Public Services Manager. The Buena Park Library thanks Disney Entertainment, Ms. Zuliani, and Ms. Pat Wayne of the Arts Orange County organization for co-hosting this event here in Buena Park to represent our part of the annual Imagination Celebration.

More events with the “Imagination of the Move” theme are still being offered for the next few weeks and are brought to you by the Arts Orange County and Orange County Department of Education, as a presentation of the Imagination Celebration, “a county-wide spring arts festival for families, children and creative people of all ages.” For more details and events, please their website.

Catch the Buena Park Library again at their booth at the Cultural Art Faire presented by the City of Buena Park’s Recreation, Park and Community Services Department’s Cultural and Fine Art’s Division on Saturday, May 20, 2006 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Ehlers Recreation Center, 8150 Knott Ave., just south of the intersection of Knott and La Palma. Admission and parking are free.
