This weekend is the fantastically fun Corn Festival at the South Shore Science Center in Norwell.  I cannot wait to enjoy the upcoming days where I see many familiar faces coming to laugh along with the tales I tell!  Everyone comes with me - Moose and Wolf and Edgar and Uncle Charlie - with even the rare appearance from Max.  My shows are at 11:30am and 1:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.  Bring your funny bones and your appetite!  Click on the image above to get more info!

To celebrate the South Shore Family Network’s Raising a Reader series starting this week at the Plympton Library I will be doing live videos of bedtime stories on Facebook.  If you haven’t liked the Big Ryan’s Tall Tales page yet - you can like it now!  I will be reading some of my favorite stories to my little ones and you can see it all live at 7:00pm - starting NEXT SUNDAY!

Come to the Plympton Library at 2:00pm for my first fall show!  It will be so much fun - I can hardly stand it!  Make sure you get there nice and early to beat the rush!  I am nice and rested from the crazy summer schedule and looking forward to today’s show - so be there and be square!  Wait… that doesn’t sound right

Check out Macy’s at the Kingston Collection this weekend for a hilariously great time as I tell tales and raise money for a good cause too!

It will be beautiful and sunny and a perfect day to enjoy a Waterfront Festival!  Come to Gray’s Beach and enjoy the day!  I have shows at 11:00am and 1:00pm.  The entire day will be wonderful but I have it on good authority that my shows will be the highlight of the whole thing!

this week

This week has been famous for being the busiest week of the year. This year didn’t disappoint - yet again I am performing 2 or 3 shows everyday until Friday of course when I get to spend the day with my little girl in P-Town. The shows this summer has been interesting - hit or miss - with the crowds. The weather has certainly been impacting the crowds but I’ve been lucky enough to have an enthusiastic group, no matter how large or small, at every show. For example, my show in Bourne last week had only 5 children but a couple of the kids, as their grandmother told me, have been looking forward to this show all year. That’s always so nice to hear! The show the following day at the Plymouth Library had a crowd of 100 and every child was laughing so loud. I’m looking forward to another busy week - I can’t wait to see what each new show brings!

I apologize for not updating my site last week. It was a doozy of a week! Now, I do have a few moments to let everyone know what’s happening this week. Not only do I get to visit schools I usually see annually but also a new place called “An Unlikely Story” which is a bookstore in Plainville - come and check it out! Travelling all over MA in the summer can have it’s perks too. Last week on my way to Belchertown I stopped by Purgatory Chasm. I will post pictures later. If you want to see some now you can go to Facebook and “Like” the Big Ryan’s Tall Tales page to see more updates.
