Vent Haven ConVENTion

For those will be in the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area this week, the 2006 Vent Haven ConVENTion is going on July 12-15 in Fort Mitchell, KY. I have not personally attended this event, but everyone I know that has attended says that it is a must-see for anyone interested in puppetry or ventriloquism. There are some big name performers and puppet makers lined up to do presentations and approximately 26 vendors will be there peddling their wares.

This year they will celebrate the life of Paul Winchell one of the most revered ventriloquist of all times. (I best remember him as the voice of Tigger, although he was also an amateur inventor and patented an artificial human heart, the first disposable razor, a see-through garter belt, a flameless cigarette lighter, and a fountain pen with a retractable tip.)

For more information you can call 1-740-438-6552 or contact the conVENTion director Mark Wade at markwade@venthaven.com.
