I am fur-ociously exhausted from a whole week of outer space adventures. Last week I saw a show at Puppet Showplace, went to the planetarium, and ended the week by making an awesome outer space monkey puppet. It was so much fun, and I'm so ready to start this week's adventures. In case you missed it, each week I'll be seeing a puppet show and then traveling around the city finding other awesome things to do that will help me learn even more. Here come Bella's Summer Adventures!
This week I’ll be seeing Pinocchio at Puppet Showplace. Have you ever heard the story of Pinocchio before? Pinocchio is a traditional Italian story that’s been adapted by the National Marionette Theater and brought here to Brookline. Pinocchio is an important part of Italian culture—he’s one of Italy’s most beloved characters. The coolest part is that Pinocchio is a puppet—just like me! Pinocchio is a traditional Italian story that’s been adapted by the National Marionette Theater and brought here to Brookline. Catch the show to see what happens to him. You’re going to LOVE it!

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Carlo Collodi's epic about a puppet who wants to become a real boy is a classic example of storytelling at its best. National Marionette's adaptation is a faithful retelling of this childhood favorite. Follow Pinocchio as he goes on a series of adventures and discovers that only by being truthful, selfless, and kind to others will he realize his dream of becoming a real live boy.
Performed by the National Marionette Theater

BELLA'S BOSTON ADVENTURES:
Then after we see the show, my friends and I are heading over to Boston’s North End to walk around and see the hub of Italian culture in Boston! There are lots of fun things to do in the North End. We saw the Paul Revere House, ate some delizioso Gelato, and played in the fountain at the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
It was a great day and I hope that you can share this adventure with me by also visiting the North End. Take a picture of you and your friends in the North End and tag Puppet Showplace on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook so I can see!
Stay tuned, because next week there will be even more adventures, and a very special giveaway!!
