Art, music, and community at LynLake

We had a blast at the LynLake Street Fest this year!  Here are a few cool things we found:

  • Koo Koo Kanga Roo was awesome.  We’d never seen them perform before because, quite frankly, I tend to steer clear of “kid’s music.”  It’s usually way too annoying for me to tolerate for long.  It’s selfish, I know.  Koo Koo Kanga Roo, however, is not annoying.  They are fun.  If you like Yo Gabba Gabba, chances are you will like Koo Koo Kanga Roo.  We are fans of both.
  • I’d been by Intermedia Arts many, many times, but I hadn’t been inside until this weekend.  The current exhibit, The Art of Tibetan Survival, celebrates peace and imagination.  Ladybug got to add her vision of peace to a Tibetan prayer flag project.  I asked her what peace looked like, and she decided to draw a boat and a book.    :)
  • My kiddo is too young for the summer mural art classes from Aldrich Arts, but she enjoyed the all ages activity they had at the festival.  She planted a flower in a paper cup she decorated.  Seeds courtesy of Mother Earth Gardens.  We may have to pay a visit to Mother Earth Gardens to buy some more seeds since Ladybug’s flower cup didn’t make it home intact. :(
