Pattyfest: A West Virginia Old-Time Music Festival Google it for exact date for the certain year you want to know, eg. "Chinese New Year 2010". Travel to Kuching two weeks before the Chinese New Year is the best time to see the locals preparing for the Chinese New Year festival. People in Kuching is always busy shopping for Chinese New Year goods and goodies during this period. On the Eve of Chinese New Year, locals will do their final shopping before noon, and after 2pm generally the Kuching is much like a dead town. Shops closed, businesses stopped, everyone is at home getting ready for their reunion dinner. If you are still in Kuching on this day, the only place you will get your dinner is probably the fast food restaurant for instance KFC or McDonald. Summary: With a grand total of 42 acts and counting, Mile High festival wristbands is going to be a tough act to follow. With two hometown bands in the line-up, 3OH!3 and The Fray, you will be hard pressed to find another festival swelling with pride. Dick"s Sporting Goods Park should accommodate festival goers quite easily, providing open space and lush grass. Think Glastonbury, U.K. If you choose to assemble your own theatrical troupe you will of course need a place to rehearse the play. If you have secured a location that will let sport wristbands you perform the show they may also let you rehearse there. If not, there is nothing wrong with a good old basement or garage. My local group spent years rehearsing in basements. Attending concerts of various kinds, plays, musicals and the opera are always good choices. If you want a little bit of excitement and you can control yourself you could share a night at one of the Race Tracks or casinos. Make a limit and don"t go crazy or you will feel sick about that date the next day and many days to come. Next, figure out how you are going to do ticket sales. The venue may have a box office and a ticketing system already in place, but most don"t. There are several websites that are made just for handling online ticket sales for indie concerts, or you may want to contact a company that specializes in event wristbands. You can even do a combination of both. Whichever method you choose, you need to keep careful track of tickets sales so you don"t exceed capacity at the venue. Once you"ve got these details nailed down you can focus on marketing and putting on your best show ever. Mr. Bush was accused of "stealing" the 2000 election. The truth is the Supreme Court decided the outcome, not George W. Bush. But even in the Democrats losing the 2000 election, they displayed little in the way of cohesiveness or any desire to accept the legally constituted outcome of the election. Why? Considered a sister scene to Detroit, which had its own share of financial woes, business decline and population shrinkage, Cleveland gave rise to a generation of punk rock counterculture. For more ideas about themes and Swap Parties, there are many fun resources to check. One such resource is Recycling Week, which provides a very detailed look at what to consider and how to host one.
