Magic Week New Haven brings free magic shows to the Elm City at the spookiest time of year. Local magicians offer a range of family-oriented shows at New Haven Public Library branches, parks and other locations starting at the Main branch Saturday, Oct. 24 at 2pm, with Magic Dan, Snowball the Rabbit and visiting magician Zach Ivins.
Magic Week not only promotes magic but also marks the anniversary of the death of Harry Houdini. Houdini, commonly regarded as the world’s most famous magician and greatest escape artist, passed away on Halloween 1926. There is no better way to honor him than by sharing the magic which he so loved.
The magicians orchestrating New Haven ’s magic week are members of the local “ring” of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (www.ring59.com). Magic Week New Haven is a chance for ring members to perform the miracles they have been practicing and honing for months and years. IBM members meet monthly to share the magic, learn new effects and keep in touch with the magical world.
A complete schedule of events is provided at magicnewhaven.com.
