BOB LAWSON – Mentalist

A benefit for The Cayuga County Arts Council

Bob Lawson has many years of experience as a professional performer. Bob thrilled his audience with his quick wit and fun show. I had such a good time watching him take his audience on a wild trip into his world of ESP. Thoroughly enjoyable!” Bob Lawson’s Mental Mystery Tour is the show that makes the Audience the star. An amazing blend of mind reading and mental
effects blended with lots of comedy. (more…)

allegria_syracuse_cirque_soleilCirque Du Soleil Alegria Syracuse New York

From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment. The company has more than 4,000 employees from over 40 different countries, including 1,000 artists.

Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 90 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents. In 2009, Cirque du Soleil will present 19 shows simultaneously throughout the world. The company has received such prestigious awards as the Emmy, Drama Desk, Bambi, ACE, Gémeaux, Félix, and Rose d’Or de Montreux.

Alegría is a mood, a state of mind. The themes of the show, whose name means “jubilation” in Spanish, are many. Power and the handing down of power over time, the evolution from ancient monarchies to modern democracies, old age, youth—it is against this backdrop that the characters of Alegría play out their lives. Kings’ fools, minstrels, beggars, old aristocrats and children make up its universe, along with the clowns, who alone are able to resist the passing of time and the social transformations that accompany it.

24th Annual Central NY Tomatofest

September 12-13, 2009 

Emerson Park on Owasco Lake
Rt 38A
Auburn, NY

All day both days

Since its inception in 1986, TomatoFest has raised over $275,000 and collected thousands of canned goods to aid in feeding the hungry through donations to several food related agencies.
The first “festival”, only a few hours long on a Sunday afternoon, was created to bring the community together and provide a public venue for not-for-profit organizations. A few hundred people turned out, and when all was said and done a small profit was realized. From there the festival has grown to a two-day event, with over 13,000 in attendance over the weekend. People from all over Central New York come to enjoy the great food, music, crafts, and entertainment for the whole family.
The name TomatoFest was selected because the festival is held at the end of the tomato season, and the thought of canning or “putting up” the harvest reflected the support of local food agencies.
A volunteer Board of Directors provides their services throughout the year, striving to make each festival a memorable event for everyone who attends. This year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever. The weekend event has expanded this year to include a dance on Friday night. The cooking contest is back again with great prizes, and a third stage has been added for music and entertainment throughout the weekend.

Check the website for food vendors and entertainment.
