Next weekend we will once again celebrate all things art…in as many ways and places as we can!
Friday evening, September 27 join us for an evening of music and dancing at the Alpine Summit Lodge. Our elders are throwing a party and we are all invited! Live music by Monika Schaefer and Friends, with an opening dance presentation by the Jasper Dance School! Starts at 6:30pm! FREE (by donation if ya’ got it!)
This year we see the Scarecrow Festival building for a second year…spearheaded this year by the Jasper Chamber of Commerce! Create a scarecrow and let us know where it is so we can add it to the weekend. Jasper the Bear will choose the one most ‘JASPERY!’ at the Alpine Summit Dance.
Saturday afternoon take in one of the two French films being offered by the Habitat for the Arts, L’ACFA, the Chaba Theatre and cIneMAGINE. The second film for us bigger kids is called Les Gamins. $5 for Le Jour and $8 for Les Gamins.
