Pelicans On Parade Event for Kids of All Ages

03 October 2019 Published in News & Events


Wondering what makes pelicans tick? … Why love a pelican?...

Please join Rosalie Winard alongside Jaimi Butler & students from Westminster College’s Great Salt Lake Institute at the Performance Art Festival in Grandma’s Attic at the Main City Library in Salt Lake City.

The Attic will be transformed into an illuminating pelican playroom for your children or grandchildren.

They can learn what a pelican eats by playing “Pelican Puke Game” (designed by GSLI at Westminster).

There will be pelicans on paper to color and storybooks about pelicans to read or be read to. People to answer pelican questions. AND a pelican for your head and selfies.

Join us and fall in love with PELICANS! Friday October 4th - 1-3pm Saturday October 5th – 9:30am-12:30p 210 East 400 South, SLC for children and adults of all ages FREE

Why We Care

  • Years ago the Great Salt Lake was a entertainment destination for the people of Salt Lake City. One of my ancestors had a vacation home near Black Rock, where he would take his family to escape the heat and cares of the city. That was a long time ago and a lot has changed since then. For many reasons the lake is not as popular as it once was. But it has been a source of peace, contemplation, and inspiration to me. I reflect on photos I have seen of the grand days of Saltair and the love of floating in the lake. I have done this myself on numerous occasions. I love the sensation of effortlessly floating. And we can escape the cares of the world.
