The Great Bobini, DTE Enviro-Magic appear at EMU Family Day Oct. 8

YPSILANTIIf you like magic, you’ll love two magic shows that highlight Eastern Michigan University’s 2005 Family Day, Saturday, Oct. 8, noon – 4 p.m. in Ypsilanti. The programs are two of the more than 50 free events designed to show families that learning can be fun.

The Great Bobini, a.k.a. Bob Jones of Toledo, will dazzle the crowd with such tricks as pulling cards out of the air and balls that magically multiply as they are juggled.  

Jones is a popular magician and entertainer who is hearing-impaired. When The Great Bobini performs an amazing feat, children are asked to raise their hands in the air and wiggle them, so The Great Bobini can see, rather than hear, their applause.

            The hour-long show begins at 12:30 p.m. in EMU’s McKenny Union Ballroom.

            DTE’s Enviro-Magic show will delve into the mysteries of land, air and water pollution and how it affects our world. Experience a great show that demonstrates how pollution can be reduced through magic. The DTE Enviro-Magic show is at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the main lounge, McKenny Union.
