Art Under the Arches

Last week’s Second Saturday was extra special with the addition of many new artists showcasing their work.

Although artists have always been a part of Second Saturday, Art Under the Arches brought out many artists who hadn’t shown their work here before. They set up their displays on both sides of the Plaza and on the grass.

We hope to see some of these artists back for 4th Saturday, February 23, when the Farmers’ Market folks will be back with more delicious produce.

Vaudeville is Coming to Town

If you’re of a certain age you may remember vaudeville. And if you’re of another age, you might well ask, What the heck is that?

Vaudeville was very popular in the United States and Canada from the early 1880s to the early 1930s. It was what people enjoyed before movies, television, DVDs, Netflix and iPhones. It was live entertainment. It was fun. It was screwy. It was downright silly. Most of all it was entertaining

Vaudeville was the whole enchilada — comedians, dancers, magicians, trained animals, acrobats, singer, jugglers — anything and everything might appear on the theater stage right before your eyes.

And guess what? Vaudeville is alive and well in Ajo!

Even more amazing you could be part of this special and crazy evening. Do you recite poetry? Play an instrument? Sing? Act? Have a dog that does neat tricks? Well, drop down to the bottom of this post, fill out the form and join our very own Vaudeville 2014 show!
