Awesome to the bone! We all got lucky , it was warm with no rain (!) or snow! First Night Raleigh was a fantastic melee of music , magic and people-hood. The Celebration of hope began with all day kid activities and makings, joyously , the People's Procession was drummed and piped along with the magnificent spirits created by Paper-hand Puppet Intervention worn carried and inhabited people by all ages . Taking to the streets with earth and the heavens represented is a meaningful community piece, how often do you show your life power and share it with your whole town? The tons of events from Baba Chuck Davis's Dance ensemble to ballroom at the Sir Walter Raleigh comedy , allll kinds of music , it was fantastic. The bands in City Plaza were ripping full of energy giving their all till the acorn ball dropped ( not once but twice, and fireworks x2 were supreme. For what ever first night has or hasn't been in the past, last night it was shining and wonderful. Getting people out, together , to ring in a new year is hope in hand. Making the message last beyond one night's party, might be a miracle, here's to a "new" year! We are banded together!
