In our lovely economic climate we have all heard about the new hot thing in vacation planning: The Staycation. This is where you stay put (or don't travel far) and take advantage of the fabulous things in your own neighborhoods, cities, or area--those things that you always think you need to go see/do but never seem to get around to it (for me it is visiting Timpanogos Cave--never done it). Well for those of you who are nearby, here is a gentle reminder/idea for your September staycation:
This year is the 20th anniversary of theTimpanogos Storytelling Festival and so they have created a truly incredible lineup of tellers and events. If you have never been this is definitely the year to come.
Date: September 5-7, 2009
Time: Both day and evening events; see website for further information
Place: MT. Timpanogos Park (up Provo canyon)
Let me know if you need some direction on who to see and I will steer you in the direction of the very best (in my humble opinion) of the best.
Also, although I've said it before I'll say it again: this is not story time at your local library. People of all ages will thoroughly enjoy this type of storytelling. In fact, I think children probably often don't fully appreciate the stories--although they are of course fully family friendly.
