Americana World Festival

We spent a few hours on a recent Saturday morning watching some acts at the 24th Americana World Festival, hosted by the Americana Community Center.

There was, of course, dancing:

Appalatin had a large group up and dancing by the end of its set.

There was also music, food and vendors. I recorded two performances, but my iPhone didn’t pick up any audio. I’m researching ways to correct this, but it seems that those videos are a loss. That sucks because I really wanted you to hear some Appalatin and watch one of the the high school students’ dances.

The photo quality wasn’t all that great either. I’m pretty disappointed at the overall visual quality. Next time I’ll know to at least take my point-and-shoot if not my D50.

I had a blast, though, and I can’t wait for next year’s event.

The community center offers a wide variety of services —from family education and after school programs to art and a community gardens.
