For more than four decades magician Rickie Rowray has been perfecting his craft. Born deaf, he attended the Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs and first began to practice magic at the age of 19. Today he has won awards for his magic and also for his balloon artistry. He is one of the Governor's Very Special Arts Festival performers. With the help of volunteers from the Fun Forest audience his feats of magic entertain and inspire.
