Maine Magician & Family Entertainer Weblog 1 of 2009

Well it’s good to get a chance to get another blog off to everyone again. I recently participated in a couple of fair tradeshows in January and February. The Maine Fair convention was a blast. I got to go down with a good buddy and magician and we spent the night performing and sharing magic. I had a nice time seeing a lot of the Fair folks that came from all parts to come to the convention. I also had a nice time in VT at the NH/VT Fair convention. I got to take my family and we were able to have some time together. I had a bit of a mishap down there staying in the hot tub too long and then getting to visit the local hospital because of it. (I’m sure I’m not the only one to have done this. At least that the doctor assured me of that.)

From the conventions I booked several fairs. Some new to me and some repeats. I also have some possible ones as well, once they get back to their committees for final decisions.  February Vacation is great this year everyday has been booked! I’ll be at several libraries doing magic workshops and also some shows. Sugarloaf is in the mix as well for the Children’s Festival.

I’m currently working on my Summer Reading Magic Show and looking forward to the spring. I’ve got some new trick ordered and have been working on some new routines that I hope will be well received this year in the shows.  I’m gearing up for the Maine Parks and Recreation Entertainment Showcase next month as well as touching base with community festivals. I’m also working toward doing more Gospel Magic this year. Please keep this in your prayers as I endeavor to reach those who might not know the saving knowledge of Christ.  Well that’s about it for now, so enjoy the weather as it gets warmer.

Until my next blog….remember to find the magic in life!

Maine Magician June & July 08

Hi Everyone,

Whelp I guess a monthly blog will be asking too much of my schedule so I’ve decided to change it to a bi-monthly blog instead. This hopefully will give me enough time to make updates on the blog. Well since I decided to post this for June and July, I’ll let you know what happened in June and whats coming up in July.

June was my get ready month for many show this summer. We kicked off my Bug Magic Show in Lincoln Maine with great success. The kids had a great time learning about insects and having fun with magic. I look forward to several other libraries I’ve booked this show with and hope they all go just as well.

Also in June was my 2 vacations! Yes two of them. Well the first one is a magic convention I have attend for 3 years now in NY. It’s a 3 day event for me to learn and share my talent with other magicians. The second vacation was my family vacation. It fell on a off and on weather week but we made the best out of it. We visited York’s Wild Animal Kingdom, Acadia Nation Park, A Bike Rally in Derry NH, and kicked back a few days as well. The last part of vacation was my12 year marriage aanniversary with my wife. We went to Hollywood slots in Bangor and stayed overnight in Belfast. We enjoyed the next day going to the Big Chicken Barn Antiques and Used Book Store as well as some flea markets. It was a nice time and I know I’m a very lucky guy to have such a great wife.

July is the Push season! I’ve got several repeat booking from campgrounds and festivals I’ve done in the past and many new shows as well. I’ll be in Canton MA over the 4th of July performing strolling magic and the following weeks I will be presenting my bug magic show to several libraries. I’ll also be at a biker event in Skowhegan on the 19th. It’s the first of it’s type in Skowhegan and I’m hoping it will be the start of a new trend every year.

Well I guess that’s it for now. I hope I can stay on track this time by bumping it to a Bi-Monthly blog. Have a great one and remember to find the magic in life!

Magically,
