Ellis Paul at Club Passim—June 23 at 3:30
Playground parents may be recognizing artist Ellis Paul from their own iTunes playlists. Your eyes do not deceive you! Longtime Boston artist Paul created the foundation of his career with adult folk music inspired by his role model Woodie Guthrie, and has just in recent years turned to children’s music after having a few of his own. This family-friendly show is in support of his recent release The Hero In You, a wonderful album that we’ll be giving away this weekend and more on the Playground. Stay tuned in for more details on the show and on The Hero in You!

Big Updates at the Franklin Park Zoo—Starting This Summer!
We know, we know—it doesn’t take a genius to know that the zoo is one of the most popular summer destinations for families and animal lovers alike, but Franklin Park Zoo in Boston is gearing up for ever more sun and fun in 2012! A 72-acre playground for all zoo-goers will be set to go late this month complete with slides, climbers, play panels, and shady picnic tables for Mom and Dad. Add that to the monkey exhibit and you’ve got yourself a perfect day.
That’s it for this week, Playgrounders and company. Come back next week for the latest pre-summer fun, and get ready for the best summer ever on the Playground!
