Parents looking for ways to entertain their young ones over March break only have to look for the green hair and big, red nose for some excitement, imagination, sing-a-longs and a positive environmental message.

Scheduled to perform across the Okanagan and Shuswap this spring break on their Magical Mystery Tour, Kiki the Eco Elf and Curly the Imaginician will have families laughing, singing and dancing to their wacky antics.

The duo makes its way to the Vernon Recreation Complex Friday.

With the foolery, magic and juggling skills of Curly, and the uplifting songs and dancing of Kiki the Eco Elf, there is bound to be an excellent adventure for the entire audience.

“Appropriate for ages two to 99, this show is packed with audience participation,” said Kiki, who is based in Vernon.

She has been singing her way up and down western Canada since 2008, spreading joy and awareness for ecological sustainability.

Kiki has performed at the Rarearth and Komasket music festivals, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues, Huckleberry Fest, Robson Valley Music Fest and at fairs, community events, schools and libraries in Alberta and B.C.

Curly the Imaginician is a juggling, magical, theatrical chameleon who has been entertaining children since he was a child himself.

He grew up in England and immigrated to Canada, where he has been sharing his mystical shows with the young at heart, and says he dreams inside a land of myth-magic and loves to take people there.

Kiki and Curly bring their show to the Vernon Recreation Centre auditorium Friday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m.  Tickets are available at the door and cost $10 for adults/children six and over, and $5 for children ages three to five. Two years and under are free.
