Don't be late for this very important date! Lewiston Council on the Arts presents "Alice in Wonderland" Sunday, June 1, at Seneca (Bug) Park, next to the Lewiston Public Library, 305 S. Eighth St.
Afternoon activities begin at 12:30 p.m. and include hat-making, games, stories, face-painting, lots of bubbles and, of course, a Mad Hatter's tea party.

The highlight of the afternoon will be the 2 p.m. performance by MOTUS O Dance Theatre from Toronto. "Alice" is an exhilarating adventure that spins viewers off into another land. This innovative and high-energy troupe will enthrall audiences of all ages with its imaginative and fresh interpretation of "Alice" in her topsy-turvy world.
