David Morrison, Director of Historic Harrisburg Association and member of the Rotary Club of Harrisburg, will narrate an historical bus tour around the City of Harrisburg.  His insights will certainly enlighten all who participate!

The Gizmo Guys - https://thegizmoguys.com/
Performing as the Gizmo Guys, Allan Jacobs and Barrett Felker have amused audiences around the world.  They put the comedy in comedy juggling.  One of the greatest acts in the history of “throwing up” The Gizmo Guys are excited to be with us this year.  Based in New York City, Allen and Barrett have traveled the country with their unique style of teamwork.  Making impossible things happen with clubs, balls, machetes, and diablos while fighting gravity and cracking jokes, is further enhanced by inviting YOU onstage.  Don’t worry, it is always safe, never embarrassing and is why they are in such demand.
 
Jason Hudy is THE rising star in the world of illusion based magic.  He has amazed audiences and performed all over the USA and throughout Asia.  With 1,000 shows on the resort island of Saipan, followed by a guest appearance in the world famous “House of Magic” in Macau, China.  Add 6,500 other shows the previous 12 years in theaters, amusement parks, casinos, you’d think he’d be a little weary.  NO WAY.  His energy, poise and professionalism will show you why he is “the one to watch.”
 
Stoil and Ekaterina combine color, music, magic and the fabulous art of quick-change to create a high energy show that will leaving you ask – how did they do that?  Their amazing act that has taken them around the world in style and to great accolades.  Originally from the Eastern European nation of Bulgaria, these two now live in Los Angeles.  And, please give them a special welcome as new American citizens. 
 
R.G. Smith, MC
Master Of Ceremonies, longtime show producer/director, R.G. returns this year to guide the audience through this excellent entertainment experience. He’ll keep things moving and has a few new things to share.
