Fishbon Wonderland New Year's Eve
Fishbon Wonderland, the fourth major Fishbon event to be held at the Fishbon Pescadrome kicked off at 9pm New Year's Eve and finally finished after sunrise on January 1st. The eagerly anticipated event was sold out days before and attracted revelers from as far away as Germany to an evening of advanced celebration science. All three floors of the studio were pressed into service as participants chose from a 3-D Blacklight World, Snow Tunnel, Snow Bar with Stilt Perches, Warming Rooms, Sculpture Installations, Snow Palace with shredded snow and Siren Stage and a New Year's Angel who accepted New Year Wishes. The evening was anchored by three perfomances (Brian's Shadow Puppet piece with original music by Monkey C, Ronit's Prelude, and Snow Whyte and the Seven Sirens, a Cabaret Extravaganza with an accordion, tuba, trombone and drum band and a cast of 13)More than 30 artists worked on the project for 8 weeks. The celebration was the best ever.
