One of our family’s favorite series of movies is Shrek and when we heard that Puss In Boots has his own movie coming out, we couldn’t wait! Now, our favorite stars of the movie are on a tour of New York this weekend, with Long Island being their first stop!
Want to see them?
Their first stop will be the Farmingdale Library (116 Merritts Road) from 3-4pm on Friday, October 28. Visit the Children’s Department to have your picture taken with Puss in Boots and Kitty Soft Paws from the move, plus the library will have some surprises for you! Note that the library’s website states “preference will be given to School District #22 residents” so you may want to call them and check first – 516.249.9090
After reading their favorite tales at the library, Kitty Soft Paws and Puss in Boots will head over to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum (145 Brooklyn Avenue) for their annual Monster Mash. Join us for a night filled with scavenger hunts, storytelling and puppet workshops! The cats will arrive around 5, but don’t hesitate to head over early and enjoy all of the fright-filled activities – they can’t wait to do the kitty shuffle with you during the Groovy Ghouls Dance Party!!
On Saturday, don’t miss the cats at the Central Park Pumpkin Festival (Central Park Bandshell, you can enter at 72nd Street) – they’ll be at a special Puss In Boots booth filled with special treats and goodies for you! This event is free and is rain or shine.
And finally, before they collapse from exhaustion from their whirlwind tour, Kitty Soft Paws and Puss In Boots will stop at Books of Wonder (18 West 18th Street, NYC) on Saturday afternoon from 4-5pm – don’t miss your last change for your favorite cats to autograph your favorite book!
