“Bears on Broad Street” will be back in August 2011
News Release 4/1/2011: The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center is reporting that they have scheduled the “Rosaire Live Bear Show” to return on August 13 and 14th at 345 Broad Street Waverly, NY. The show which has been dubbed “Bears on Broad Street” will take place in a “mini- amphitheater” and will be located next to the Center on Park Ave which will be blocked off. There will be 2 shows per day and tickets will go on sale soon. For those that did not attend the 2009 event, a picture gallery is posted online and can be seen at http://www.sracenter.org/SRAC_Bears_Slideshow/ .
Derrick Rosaire Jr. and brother Frederick, are ninth generation animal trainers and performers, and their family take great pleasure in the raising and nurturing of the rescued bears as members of their own family. They hope to bring an understanding of the beauty and necessity of these incredible animals to the audience, that will delight and amaze people of all ages.
SRAC’s Deb Twigg reports, “The first time that the live bear show came to Broad Street was for only one day in August 2009. It was a popular event then, even though we only had a few weeks to plan and advertise for it because of last minute scheduling. This year we have plenty of time to get the word out, and I have to warn people to consider buying their tickets early to ensure that they get a seat. We will be putting the tickets on sale soon in the SRAC gift shop as well as online. It’s not often that you’ll get to see live bears in such an up close and personal setting.”
