Come dressed in a cat costume (if you like) and enjoy a day of festivities, including face painting; writing and reading a poem about your favorite cat; drawing and painting (in conjunction with Art Haven, and games. If the mood takes you to be a cat for even a moment, there will be a painted billboard face insert of a cat for a photo op. Bring your picnic and a blanket. The day concludes with a cat dance performance for all by local dance students from – Magma and BoSoma.
