Belfast Free Library, 106 High St., will host a Halloween Party Saturday, Oct. 31, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Featured will be a magic and ventriloquist performance by Dana and Friends, an act that has several puppets including a giant bird named Pee Wee who is almost as tall as Dana Perkins himself. In addition to his puppet friends, Perkins will present juggling, surprise paper cutting and mind-boggling magic tricks.

Halloween touch-and-feel boxes will add to the fun, and healthy treats will be provided by the library. All members of the family are invited to this free program. For more information, contact the library at 338-3884, ext. 24.
