A group of ARTech students appeared outside the window of my corner office at GBM this morning. They were walking around downtown singing Christmas carols. When I went outside to take a photo, they were singing Winter Wonderland, one of my favorites. It was already in my head, as Trailer Trash performed their version of the song last night at A Trashy Little Xmas: Walkin’ in My Winter Underwear.
Given the crappy winter weather we’ve had this week (and projected to continue through xmas), it might be good for the students to add the song Summertime Summertime to their repertoire.
Other attractions include a rain barrel workshop by Cannon River Watershed Partnership (call 507-786-8400 to register), a dance clinic with the NAG’s Mexican Folkloric dancers, wool spinning demos, a compost exhibit by Prairie Creek Community School, local music and more.
