    Hello! Tried to go to the magic show on SUNDAY. I got confused by the conflicting days and got my mind hooked on Sunday being the day, as stated above, completely over looking the Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 date on the Carleton web page. I saved the day anyway by taking my kids to the Experimental Farm. They always like that.
