|Out & About with Shayne|
|Normally, I would be very excited to experience anything dealing with the arts. Unfortunately, that joy was sucked out of me the second I pulled into the IMA parking lot for this event.
Paying a $5 or $10 cover for an arts fair is fine, especially when it's for a good cause. But $25 for parking in addition to the $15 ticket price was absolutely absurd. Luckily, I was able to get around the parking. Otherwise, I would not have attended.
Yes, there were tons of booths, but not a lot that I would be interested in. Most of them were filled with common, everyday stuff that you could get anywhere. There were a few unique items that would have found a place in my home if I had the money. Some of the food booths were good, but nothing special. The bands and dancers were thoroughly entertaining. Overall, I give this event a 2 out of 5. This may be their 41st year, but it was my first and probably last.
Anyhow, I recorded some great video of our very own Stacie Sandoval and her Tropical Jazztet (www.myspace.com/orquestabravomusic), the amazing Cynthia Layne (www.cynthialayne.com), and a moving performance by the Indianapolis School of Ballet.
I hope you enjoy the pics and my attempt at a video collage.
Thanks for reading,
