1:00 PM: Stockholm theatre group Boulevardteatern presents the enchanting story of Guji Guji, adapted from the book by Chih Yuan Chen. The story begins when a crocodile egg lands in a duck’s nest.

Mother Duck doesn’t care that Guji is different from the other young ones—they are her children and she loves them all, just the way they are. Intended for children ages 3-8 and their families.
