The Trailside is hosting their popular Wednesday Matinees.  These matinees begin at 1:30 p.m. and run approximately 45 minutes.  All shows are recommended for children ages 4 and older.   Admission is $4 per person and tickets go on sale at 1:00 p.m. before each Wednesday matinee.  This series will run each Wednesday (excluding July 4th) through August 15, 2012.

The popular Wednesday Matinee Series at Trailside Nature & Science Center in Mountainside continues today with special visitors: “Rizzo’s Reptiles”. Blending nature, environment and conservation, this program features live snakes, turtles and an alligator.

“The Summer Wednesday Matinee Series at Trailside is a perfect opportunity to share creative and interactive programs with your family,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “The programs of magic, nature and music will teach, entertain and delight young children and adults alike.”

“Kids in Motion” takes the stage on August 1.  It’s a high energy show that leads you on a non-stop musical journey. Jo Jo Russell, a talented DJ who encourages the audience to participate, will have everyone clapping and stomping from start to finish.

On August 8, the natural excitement continues with “The Science of Magic”.   Lisa Lou will reveal the secrets of magnetism, light, air, condensation, optical illusion, and plenty of other magical tricks up her sleeve. 

“Hocus Pocus” on August 15 with Joe Fischer, Magician Extraordinaire, will be the final show in the 2012 Wednesday Matinee Series.  Joe is sure to astound, baffle and thrill the audience with his blend of magic, comedy and excitement. He has an outstanding rapport with children and his ability to engage audience members of all ages makes this show “pure magic.”
