The annual West Fulton Puppet Festival makes its return to the Schoharie County hamlet July 13-14.

The festival is now in its fourth year, and it includes performances of all sorts of puppetry. Blurbage for some of the offerings:

The 2018 West Fulton Puppet Festival will feature work from New York, Chicago, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida, playing in rotation throughout the two-day Festival. The lineup includes Morgan Kelly's Legume Perfume, a shadow puppet play for young audiences that follows the adventures of an ordinary Bean as he goes on a journey of self-discovery and includes a post-show workshop (Saturday, July 14 at 10am & 2pm); Big Nazo an international performance group of visual artists, puppet performers, and masked musicians who unite to create bizarre and hilarious larger-than-life sized characters, environments, and spectacles (Saturday, July 14 at 10.45am & 1pm); The Gottabee's Lollipops for Breakfast a marvelous confection of friendship, invention, and adventure as Sylvie and her pet bird search for the missing ingredients to make an amazingly perfect lollipop, wrestle with giant candy machines, and get lost in a magical pop-up cookbook (Saturday, July 14 at 11.45am & 5pm); Acme Miniature Flea Circus might cause you to itch your head a little as trained fleas Midge and Madge perform spectacular circus stunts as seen before (and on top of) the crowned heads of Europe (Saturday July 14 at 11.15am and 3pm); Christopher Durham will be talking about animal relationships and the sometimes unlikely bonds that have formed between animals in his care (both wild and domestic) during The Joy of Animal Relationships (Saturday, July 14 at 12.30pm & 4pm).

That Friday includes a community potluck and a screening of animated shorts created by students. The puppet performances are on Saturday. Here's the full schedule.

Admission to the performances is free, but it's ticketed -- you can get tickets day of at West Fulton Park.

West Fulton is a hamlet in the town of Fulton -- it's pretty much right in the center of Schoharie County, just about an hour from Albany.
