This past Saturday the local Daylily Society had their Daylily Festival, which happens to be part of Festival South. I’d never been to a Daylily show, so I figured why not. I’m not particularly partial to daylilies, per se, but I do enjoy flowers and always catch the flower displays at the local fair when we go. Plus, I’d not once stepped foot into our Convention Center which has been here almost 20 years.
My city participates in Festival South. For the past several years, in June, there will be numerous art events all over the city, for pretty much the entire month. I think it’s a fab idea, however, there is so many different events and the way that the organization lays it all out is extremely confusing to me. I miss all of the good stuff. All I can ever seem to read are the things I’m not interested in, the things that cost money, or the events at the ungodly hour of nine in the morning.
So, this year I missed seeing Russian Ballet because it wasn’t even in their program for 4 June, but the magazine I picked up today listed it, and the Russian lady I met today told me about it; though she was also confused by the Festival South programming because she thought it was tomorrow.
I also missed this other art exhibit about Southern Influences, because it also wasn’t in the program and was only sent to my email by the Festival South team the day before it was over and I was busy attending a funeral on this exhibits last day.
