Latin Fest '09

Sunday, August 09, 2009

The storm clouds parted just in time for the music...YES!

...and they resumed right after the last song...felt like Moses and the parting of the waters...lol!

There is something so heartfelt and full of LIFE about latin music! A body just HAS to MOVE to this music...everyone's smiling and having such a great time. What a wonderful way to celebrate summer!

Here are some pics of everyone (even the MAYOR of Binghamton! :-) ) just moving to the music!

Here was a cute distraction I noticed overhead:

"They'll be laughin' & singin' & music swingin' and dancin' in the streets!"

Kudos to the band! Even tho I hadn't a CLUE what they were saying, it was fun to hear the singer and Hispanic members of the crowd kidding back and forth and laughing.

Good time had by all!

Now: SOMEDAY I'll overcome feeling too self-conscious and be one of those dancers out there dancing my heart out!

Terrific ending to the weekend...! This event was sponsored by the City of Binghamton and M & T Bank...kudos to any and all organizations who support the arts! It's events like these which helps to transcend us from the ordinary ho-hum and add QUALITY to our lives! Be sure to let your politicians & businesses which support these events know how much you appreciate them!

    You surprised me, and gave me hope at the same time when you said, "SOMEDAY I'll overcome feeling too self-conscious and be one of those dancers out there dancing my heart out!" I thought you already were! I also remain on the sidelines, to this day. We attended a friends' outdoor, informal wedding, salsa band and all a few weeks ago. I wanted to dance, my husband couldn't bring himself to do it. Though I could have gone out there alone, or joined another couple, I was actually relieved and used him as an excuse. Isn't that sad that we hold ourselves back? I enjoyed the photos and commentary. Thanks for sharing your day.

    Glad you had a great time. We were on our way there and were driven away by the weather reports. I guess we should have braved it.
