Making Masks with Sidewalk Sam

This Saturday, Sidewalk Sam visited the Frog Pond with boxes full of crayons and crepe paper, feathers and fabric, pipe cleaners and paint... all for creating Magical Animal Masks!

Some Artists at work:

The finished masks were quite magical!

How about some before and after photos?

Working on a rabbit mask...

It it wasn't for the dress, I'd think she was a real bunny!

I wonder what he's making...

Take a look at this playful puppy!

Cheers Beacon Hill featured on Zip Trip

BEACON HILL (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston) - “Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows you name. And they're always glad you came.” You may know the jingle, but do you know the back story of the famous pub on Beacon Hill that inspired the hit TV show "Cheers?" If not, take a look!
