Author, illustrator and musician Aaron Risi will visit Rochester to present a musical program based on his newest book, “A Moose with a Uke.”
Risi will host the free program on Monday, July 29, at 6 p.m. at the Rochester Common. He will play songs on his ukulele and provide coloring pages of Monty the Moose, the title character of Risi’s book.
In addition, kids who attend will have the chance to enter a free raffle to win a ukulele of their own, courtesy of Pete’s Guitar Studio.
The event will also feature a clothing drive, where attendees can bring new or gently used clothing to donate to the Pass Along Project, which provides emergency clothing bundles to children entering foster care. Kids of parents who donate will be entitled to free ice cream.
