This act is a favorite at every festival! Standing room only crowds are always thrilled and mystified by the sights and sounds of this phenomenal act at every performance! Dr. A may paint his face and try to act normal, whatever that is. Just humor him and step over his body if he is napping.

The Morningsong Band & Zuni Dancers. This Native American songbird is an award winning performer and recording artist that brings a strong element of native spirituality and tradition woven with contemporary music to moving performances. From soul stirring music..to the wonderful dances of the Zuni people, this amazing act is promised to spellbound!

The show always begins with a blank canvas and in less than 10 minutes, the speed painting performing artists produce beautiful portraits of endangered animals for our delight and amazement!

Bring your feathers and face paint! Dr. A may not be recognizable.

Our trip last Friday to the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford was wonderful! The Center showcased the talents and skills of fiber artist Katrina Wright and our children had a truly delightful time exploring the fabulous museum and taking turns being inside the authentic Stagecoach. It was a privilege to learn so much about the artist who made the Stagecoach and what it represented.

Our thanks to the beautiful staff and docents at the Doss Center. Weatherford has so much to be proud of in this precious jewel reflecting the heritage and culture of Parker County. I encourage everyone to visit.
