Green Is The Theme For Costume Party And Dance
Green is the theme for the Green Gala of Yalobusha Costume Party and Dance March 16 at Bozarts Gallery.
The event benefits the Water Valley Arts Council’s Summer Art Camp for Kids, according to Ramona Bernard. “Last year 50 local area children enjoyed a week-long day camp filled with painting, puppetry, and performance and we’re planning to do it again this summer,” Bernard reported.
A Green King and Queen will be crowed and prizes awarded for the best Green Team, Most Environment-ally Green, and Cleverest Use of Green (color or concept) but you don’t need to wear a costume to join the party, Bernard added.
Tickets are $10 at the door. Refreshments will be served. For more information about the Costume party and Dance or the Summer Art Camp, please call the Water Valley Arts Council at 662 473-9851.
