Groovy Hippie Party

Were you at the big Hippie Party?  It was packed!  Most of  the people had on costumes and it was hard to recognize our friends!  Thomi's was a wonderful place to have it at, they were terrific!  Thanks to Frank and Thomi and the staff for taking such great care of us!

We all put a lot of effort in to producing this show, we worked on it for months ahead of time.  Steve and I went in to overdrive on the marketing, you could hardly go anyplace in town without seeing a poster!  John created a terrific light show and our friend Dennis ran it for us (thanks Dennis!).

We brought the bus that Martie gave us at her birthday party and it was a huge hit!  If you took any pictures that night, I hope you will share them with me!

Mary helped us at the door, I don't know what we would have done without her!  (thanks Mary!).  We sold tickets at the door, but most of them were sold ahead of time.  Thanks to Thomi's, Hein & Co. Book Store and Motherlode Music for ticket sales.

When the day finally arrived we were all so excited it was electric.  This was Jerry's first Hippie Party and he brought the vintage tapestries that were on the stage.  He also brought the band vintage pins that were soooo cool.

We decorated the room, Steve made some big signs to put around on the walls that were very cool.  One of our guests even asked to take one home as a souvenir!

Mike Charran, a friend of John's volunteered to take video of the show and we are so grateful for that.   He did an awesome job and now we have video to share with YOU!!

At the last minute, a friend of ours (Marla) called to let us know about a very talented young magician and juggler in our neighborhood and we thought he would fit in perfectly with our show.  A very special thanks to Cody for your mystical entertainment.

The costumes were fabulous!  I just loved everyone's creativity.  Some people you wouldn't even recognize (including my hubby!).

 The dance floor was packed all night!

One fun thing about a Hippie Party...there are no strangers!  Everyone is a friend.

The light show was just terrific. It made the experience so much more!!

Our "Best Dressed".  We also had a "Best Couple", but we were all too busy dancing to pause for a picture.  

Thanks to Mike, we have some wonderful video to remember the night by.  I condensed over an hour down to just over 10 minutes.  Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who came.  It was a truly magical, GROOVY and Far OUT that we will all remember forever!
