“Fun in William Land Park”

This year both the Banana Festival and The Fire Spectacular are being held in William Land Park. Both events are unique opportunities to experience and be a part of.

The Fire Spectacular is happening on August 11th in the evening. As the sun goes down, sparks will start to fly. The Fire spectacular will offer lots of beautiful and exciting visuals. Performers include fire dances by “Obsidian Butterfly” and “Fire Pixie” and more! See “Fire Brush” create art with flames, watch “Kundalini Bellydance” demonstrate rhythmic moves, and enjoy beats with “Drumsum”, along with many other wonderful performers.
