Carnevale 2013

It's coming...Carnevale 2013: the third annual magical celebration at the Garden: please join us!

June 15th, starting at 5pm at the Idaho Botanical Garden.
I can't believe this is the 3rd year already; what started out as my own little idea to celebrate art & performance has grown into an annual Garden event! This year we are starting earlier, to give everyone time to browse the artist booths, get a temporary tattoo, or even a make-over (steampunk style) before the performances begin.    The Red-Light Variety Show will be back again to wow us with their aerial silks, pole, hula-hoop, & other amazing acts.  We will also be treated to a magic show, high fashion on the runway, & fire performances at the end of the evening.   There will be a full bar & dinner service available, as well as fortune tellers, face painting, costume contest & more...

I'm working on some amazing trophies for the best costume, best top-hat & best mask; come in your best for a chance to win :)  Costumes are encouraged, but certainly not required--come dressed up or just as you are: either way, you will be treated to a magical evening :)

Check out the Facebook Carnevale page for lots of photos from the last 2 years, updates, contests, & more:

And, check back here--I'll be doing some ticket give-aways soon!

Hope to see you in the Garden on the 15th :)
