The big show was fine. The last magician produced so many doves that I was reminded of an old Mad magazine cartoon where a magician's act suddenly goes haywire, with rabbits and birds pouring out of the magician's sleeves, leaving only a little puddle of empty clothes.
The last act we saw was a guy making balloon animals. Not magic in the usual sense, but still amazing. As always, a really neat evening, especially with good company.
