Mississippi Mills is hosting the 8th annual Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival this year in Almonte on August 11th and 12th. The Puppets Up! committee is proud to announce Neilcorp Homes as our new Signature Sponsor. Neilcorp Homes, as Signature Sponsor, is making an important investment in fun, laughter and incredible international puppet talent and all of this in beautiful downtown Almonte.
It’s Magic in Mississippi Mills
It’s Magic! is the theme of this year’s two-day festival. Ten professional puppet troupes from across the globe will perform in the festival’s family-friendly tented theatres. Puppet’s Up! attracts families from Ottawa, Gatineau, Carleton Place, and other communities in the National Capital Region.
“Sponsoring this festival is exciting for Neilcorp. We are a family-oriented home builder that is currently developing a number of residential communities in Almonte. Supporting a local festival is a natural fit in our Almonte initiatives. We hope that our sponsorship will allow the festival to grow and are happy that it will expand their programs, talent lineup, attract more families, and put more smiles on more faces,” says Rob Dick, co-owner of Neilcorp Homes. “There’s nothing better than bringing a smile to someone’s face,” he adds.
