August 2009

I hope that you are all enjoying the summer, in spite of the rain and wind. Perhaps August will bring with it a real summer, so we can enjoy the great outdoors without getting wet. Bastille Day 2009 brought a new format which opened the occasion to more family fun and activities. This year we had The Amazing Kenno, who delighted all with his magic! Pizzazz the Clown, whose face painting and balloon sculptures added to the celebration. Deanna and her team from Drama Kids International, whose amazing energy, creativity, and enthusiasm created lots of fun for those who attended the event. Our own Nouara gave a mini French lesson, which got our children moving and having fun. Captain Squeeze and the Zydeco Moshers led the parade with about 75 participants…the kids loved it! And last, but not least, the evening ended with the wonderful music and entertainment by Captain Squeeze and the Zydeco Moshers, which, due to rain, ended up inside Proctors Theater’s at Robb Alley. It was a wonderful evening of Zydeco music; lots of fun as people were invited to be “guest” fatoi players and able to dance in the aisles!
