It all kicks off with magician Peter Boie’s family-friendly performance at the Bellingham High School auditorium (60 Blackstone Street) on Tuesday, June 24 at 7:00pm!  One of the things that has given Peter his success is his appeal to all age groups.  From the antsy five year old to the hard-to-please teenager, there’s something for everyone! Once the show starts, Peter doesn’t let you go for 45 entertaining minutes. The show runs the gamut - from audience members getting into the show and doing magic themselves to award-winning, mind-blowing magic to side-splitting comedy. Come see why Peter is a nationally in-demand magician!! No registration required. See you there!
