Description: Junkyard Symphony's Giants of Junk is a gigantically fabulous show that will dazzle people with big tricks, big smiles, big laughs, and teach them all about the big benefits of recycling.  But it's not just the humongous 12 foot junk robot, the super cool bucket stilts, the six foot unicycle, or the gigantic juggling jugs that makes Junkyard Symphony into giants of entertainment; what makes Junkyard Symphony gigantically amazing is how they take ordinary volunteers and turn them into giant SUPER STARS! The best part however, is that the robot is a marionette in which the volunteers can easily control, and that is a lot of BIG fun!
