We hit the First Night festival on Wednesday afternoon and evening in Sioux Falls. It’s a tradition for us–in fact I was on teh committee that helped Shannon Barnes start First Night several years ago. It’s a cool family celebration of the new year. The kids made turtle art, danced with Phil Baker, and really enjoyed a dance performance by Dance Gallery. (Mesa is convinced she must enroll in some classes now.) I enjoyed another really cool and unique performance called Constellation, but the little ones got a bit scared of the star god.
The sad news is I further confirmed that I am getting old by falling asleep by 11pm. Here’s a video of Zoey and Mesa “Dancing in the Circle” with Phil.
