Don’t miss the legendary musical Mary Poppins, performed by the senior students (ages 12-16) at Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth! Filled with bright music and dance, this family-friendly show can be enjoyed by children of all ages. The story opens with Bert, a spry young chimney sweep and street artist, who is quite infatuated with our leading lady. At the request of Jane and Michael Banks, Mary Poppins swoops in to help their family. It’s never a dull moment when Mary Poppins is in town, and this nanny’s quirky nature becomes increasingly magical as the story unfolds! Click HERE for showtimes, tickets, and more info!

The world record attempt will be directly following the Farmers Day Parade.
