Little ones will be rocking and rolling at this year’s Snoqualmie Railroad Days Children’s Stage.

Children’s shows are 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, at the Northwest Railway Museum.

Past favorites who are back include Eric Ode, who will be bringing back his onstage friend Scratch, a sarcastic, edgy, rough-around-the-edges barn cat, as he performs familiar and original songs.

“Everything has a slant to it, that allows it to be a call-and-response, movement, or hand motion song,” Ode said.

Also onstage will be children’s songwriter Brian Vogan and his six-piece group, playing diverse music for all ages.

“We try to make it fun for adults and for kids,” Vogan said. “As far as actual fun, we have get-up-and move-around music centered around kids.”

To mix it up a little, puppeteer Clay Martin brings his puppet theatre, while singer-songwriter Nancy Stewart will bring out more songs the tykes will get up and dance to.
