When you visit us for Happy Halloween Weekends, be sure to include our Halloween Magic Show on your don’t-miss-it list.
Unless, of course, you don’t like to laugh.
Or hear children laugh.
Don Baggett’s magic skills extend far beyond sleight of hand. He has the gift of extracting giggly, irrepressible laughter from youngsters.
You know, that kind of laughter that would be called raucous if it came from adults.
But we’re usually too dignified to erupt with that much unbridled glee.
Earlier this year, I asked Don when the magic bug bit him and was touched by his reply:
The very first magic show I ever saw as a child was at Santa Claus Land (now Holiday World).
It featured Gene Smith and Happy Kellems.
I remember sitting there watching the show several times that day, wanting to know and do the magic that was being performed for me. I also knew that someday I, too, wanted to perform on a stage at Holiday World.
My love for magic and Holiday World have always gone hand in hand.
Here’s a small sampling of Don’s magic and the wonderful laughter that always accompanies it:
Don sent us some tips for young magicians; please check them out over on our Halloween Magic Show page.
