Folklore Fridays: Boy from the Dragon Palace
No matter your age, no matter your culture there's something for you in the power of a story. Here at the Four Rivers Cultural Center we want to unite and transform our community by connecting you to the power of story and culture, it's why we're bringing folktales to life this summer with Folklore Fridays. Beginning in June, on the 4th Friday of every month, we will be connecting you to the folklore of your roots and more! Folklore Fridays will dive into the rich cultural heritages of the Four Rivers region by exploring folktales, myths and legends through creative retelling, theatrical performances, and arts and crafts designed to bring the imagination to life! Together families will have the opportunity to become a part of their favorite fables, all while experiencing the power of story. So tune in! Our goal is to bring your imagination to life so come prepared to get crafty! We will be engaging with the stories through unique and fun hands-on activities. We ask that you remember that these stories are retellings of famous legends, myths, and fairytales that have been passed down from generation to generation and while we will do our best to keep them family-friendly there may be more adult themes in each tale as folklore is meant to teach. Folklore: The Boy from the Dragon Palace Synopsis: Aesop, a famous storyteller and author of fables, once said that, "Gratitude turns what we have into enough." Join us this month as we explore the theme of gratitude through the tale of a young boy with the magical powers to grant any wish you desire! Best for Ages: All Ages Activity: In Japan the dragon is a symbol of power. They bring rain, control the clouds, and it is said that dragon kings even rule over the four seas. This month we will be creating our own dragons. Bring myths to life with this month's craft-here there be dragons!
