At 3:30 p.m. Mark Crocker is back to close out the day with side spliting humour. Join us afterwards to build your own puppet.

But, who are they?

Find the wonder in magic with the Magician Ordinaire, Sawyer Bullock! Sawyer is an international, award winning speaker and performer. His unique mixture of wit and trickery has garnered him international awards, glowing accolades, and even his own television show. At 24 years old, Sawyer has written for magazines, lectured at universities and high schools, and ran workshops at conferences on the topics of magic, art, entrepreneurship and philosophy.

Mark Crocker has become internationally recognized as one of the best ventriloquists audiences have ever seen! His clean material with no offensive language is refreshing and simply put "clever entertainment". Mark Crocker was introduced to the ancient and complex art of Ventriloquism in 1977! From simple beginnings performing on the front porch, to local cub scouts and churches. Mark steadily progressed to every style of venue. Eventually Mark leaped from the “real job” to full time entertaining in year 2000. Over four decades of entertaining audiences around the world, thousands of conferences, conventions, special events. Mark’s special blend of comedy delivered through ventriloquism, creates a wonderful mixture of old versus new.
