This year's Funtastic Fourth will be colorful to say the least. Along with the bright, color filled bursts in the night sky and the scintillance of the festival, art gallery I Think 219 will be adding a wholly different pallet to the event.
Owner, Ramon Holguin and curator, Andrew Bowman have invited 10 artists to participate in Through the Can, a painting party that will be a treat to spectators attending the festival.
It's a return engagement five years in the making.
A little bit of â€śGlee,â€ť a bit of â€śStompâ€ť and a lot of high-octane energy will return to Big Spring's annual Pops in the Park celebration when Vocal Trash performs here for the first time since 2008.
The group has been described as â€śGlee meets Stomp,â€ť but its shows defy easy descriptions, even to group members. Mixing a capella vocals, the occasional guitar or trumpet and high-tempo percussion playing on trash cans and whatever else is handy, the group is understandably difficult to label.
