Cow Ballet Becomes the Moosic Festival
The Cow Ballet has moved!
The popular fundraiser for Mountain Town Stages will be September 29, 2012, at Quinn’s Junction. For years, they’ve been hosting out in a cow patch in Peoa. This year, it’s closer to town. “We decided to move the event and make it more accessible to our patrons,” said MTM’s Community Conductor Of Musical Affairs Brian Richards. “We will miss Peoa but the event was becoming stagnant with only the die hards showing up and very few new peeps.”
The fun continues with kiddie games, pony rides, face painting, petting zoo, beer, live music- from the PC All Star Jam Band made up of Mayor Dana Williams, Mary Beth and Rich Wyman- cowpie long jump and the ever-entertaining Cow Ballet.
They do have barbecue-ish food but it’s never been that appealing to me so you might want to eat before you come or bring your own.
My favorite part is the silent auction filled with all sorts of goodies from local businesses. Last year, I ‘won’ a landscape consultation from Red Ant Works which prompted us to sheet mulch my front yard and plant all sorts of native shrubs like currants and raspberries. Next year, I may try corn.
The Hootenanny Moosic Festival runs from noon-6:30p at the National Ability Center. Click here for more detes.
