Our popular summer series Fusion Fridays is coming to a close next Friday, August 16. It’s been a fantastic season so far, so let’s look at the highlights!
In May, we kicked things off with an Indonesian shadow puppet show with live gamelan music. Sponsors Wells Fargo and Yelp! provided a fun photo booth for all to enjoy.
In June, visitors were enthralled by the dramatic Maori haka warrior dance and other Pacific Island dances, with help from the crowd. Audience participation continued with Japanese festival summer dances.
In July, we had a beautiful Thai dance performance followed by two Korean dances– one of which included not one, but THREE drums for each performer!
At each evening, visitors also enjoyed the galleries, the evening’s crafts and activities, the food trucks, and the bar featuring our partner Angel City Brewery.
You won’t want to miss 2013’s last chance for late-night performances, activities, food trucks and more in our fabulous courtyard. On August 16, we’ll have a bhangra dance instructor teaching the latest moves from South Asia, and a Chinese lion dance performance. Look for another great photo booth courtesy of Wells Fargo, crafty activities, and more! Make sure to reserve your tickets in advance on Eventbrite! ~CM
