HOUSTON AREA UU SPRING MUSIC FESTIVAL 2008
The Planets are aligned, the Gods are paid off, the UUs are befuddled, and the annual Spring Music Festival happens this Saturday, May 10, 3:00 to 9:00? P.M. rain or shine at the UU Fellowship, 1504 Wirt Rd. 77055 . What an incredible pleasure it is attending all eight area UU churches to promote the Music Festival. UU reactions range from total glaze over the eyes to “oh yeah, it’s a lot of fun, we go every year.”
The Music Festival is a lot of event to wrap ones brain around. Who would have thought that UUs can provide fire jugglers, belly dancers, hula hoopers, rock and roll musicians, classical musicians and everything in between, get them to show up at the same place, at the same time, build stages, provide sound systems and lights, DVD recording (by MesserMedia.com), security, and EMS, without a notarized covenant? Come and see for yourself.
Bring your lawn chairs, picnic (food is available for a donation), favorite beverage (remember the cork screw) , tarp, if necessary, to put your blanket on, hoops, and all your friends and family. The event is kid friendly with a large fenced play area. Look for the police officer directing traffic, and park on the side street or in the closed down 99 Cent Store parking lot. This is the single largest gathering of UUs in the Houston area. That many UUs in one place, you know it’s Good. Thanks for letting this UU have so much fun!! See you there.
