HARTFORD — The magic of storytelling will come to life at the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower, 435 Confluence Tower Drive, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 9, when Indian Princesses Pocahontas and Sacajawea make a special appearance at the new tower amphitheater.
The two princesses will showcase their storytelling and performance skills during the first hour. Sacajawea and Pocahontas will hold a meet and greet with families after their performance. Fans can bring cameras for photos with the princesses. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to use for seating at the outdoor amphitheater. This is a free event, although there is a charge to tour the tower.
“With the fantastic setting of the new outdoor amphitheater, the stories Sacajawea and Pocahontas tell will be something you surely do not want to miss,” Hartford project manager Deanna Barnes said. “So come on out and meet the princesses, enjoy the venue, and let your imagination take you into the stories.”
Summer events at the tower are sponsored by Liberty Bank.
