Franklin LaVoie's Puppet Wagon
Learn about Buffalo’s past in The Puppet Wagon. Local puppeteers Franklin LaVoie and Barbara Frackiewicz, perform Songs of the Erie Canal and Stories of Buffalo Puppet Shows. Fifty puppets perform multiple skits, to old timey music, for children of all ages.
Watch legends unfold, and scenes of Buffalo’s “deep history”, beginning 12,000 years ago. Discover the importance of Buffalo-Niagara’s geography.
The Puppet Wagon will be performing at the foot of The Immigrant Stairs- on the north-west corner of the newly completed canals. A free activity open to the public every Sunday morning, at 10 AM, from June 7th to September 6th as part of the Summer at Canalside.
