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

Children’s shows begin at noon Saturday, Aug. 21, at the Northwest Railway Museum, and continue Sunday.

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 fun 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.

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

Here too, are the North Bend Theatre’s Banana Boogie and more model trains.  Climb for Fun will have some of their inflatables here as well as in the next block.
