Dress up your little princesses & heroes for Disney on Ice this weekend in Savannah

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Disney on Ice October 2013We checked out the opening night of Disney On Ice Princesses & Heroes in Savannah & fell in love! Not just with the lively show featuring all your favorite Disney princesses in skates and your kids’ favorite Disney songs,  but also with all the kids in the audience dressed up as their favorite princesses & heroes.

My kids favorites were the 7 dwarfs on skates & the rising Cinderella Pumpkin carriage. For those with sensitive kids, there are some pyrotechnics during the early part of the second half of the show (after intermission) during the Sleeping Beauty dragon part & some fireworks at the show end.

If you go this weekend, don’t forget to seek out Cinderella’s Pumpkin Carriage in the Savannah Civic Center lobby. It was brought to life courtesy of the talented Sculpture Forum at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). The group has been working on the creation since last week on the SCAD campus in Boundary Hall.

The pumpkin, which came from the Savannah State Farmer’s Market, was 80” in circumference and 3 ft. tall when delivered to the students.

Disney on Ice is at the Savannah Civic Center October 31 – November 3, 2013.

For the past 2 years in a row, The Savannah Food Day Festival has been the largest in the United States!

Each October, The City of Savannah is treated to a large outdoor festival, that is free and open to the public. Attendees are treated to a live concert, featuring many of Savannah’s top musicians.

Attendees are also sure to find interest among the two dozen unique and completely free workshops and cooking classes, suitable for everyone, including the kids!

What is Food Day?

Think of it as an Earth Day – for food!

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. This is a national grassroots mobilization backed by some of the most prominent voices for energizing the food movement. Each year in October, people gather at events big and small and from coast to coast in homes, schools, colleges, churches, city halls, farmers’ markets, supermarkets, and elsewhere to raise awareness about food issues and advocate for change.

Craving Change?

Spearheaded by the nonprofit, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is organized around 5 priorities: ◾Promote safer, healthier diets ◾Support sustainable and organic farms ◾Reduce hunger ◾Reform factory farms to protect the environment ◾Support fair working conditions for food and farm workers

The 2013 Savannah Food Day Festival is brought to you by Well FED & Center for Science in the Public Interest.
