What a HUGE success! Holiday On the Drive was fantastic this year and I'd like to congratulate our Door Prize winners.
Congratulations, Jennifer (of College Park, Orlando) and Pamela (of Winter Park, Orlando)!
Jennifer and Pamela each won a Beachcombers Bazaar gift bag worth $50! Yeaaaaa!
Beachcombers Bazaar was proud to bring a variety of entertainment and activities to Holiday On the Drive 2008 including...
Tribal Dance Performances with Florida Tribal Dance
The stars of the evening were definitely the Florida Tribal Dancers. Both professional troupes (Blue Caravan and Black V) performed on the Beachcombers stage along with some of the advanced students of Florida Tribal Dance and the children's troupe. FTD director, Lacey Sanchez, dazzled us as always!
I cannot thank Lacey and all the beautiful dancers enough for the wonderful performances. I am delighted that we are able to work so closely with FTD and bring tribal dance to College Park as often as we can!
For those of you that caught either show, and are interested in learning tribal belly dance, the Florida Tribal Dance class schedule can be found here. Come as you are! Believe me, if I can do it, so can you!
Another special thanks to all the dancers for supporting us at Beachcombers Bazaar. I saw glass bangles, khussa shoes, and Beachcombers bindi body stickers everywhere!
You can see some videos of the performance here.
Henna Body Art with Mariko of Henna of Soul
A wonderful sweet henna artist that I send my thanks to! Mariko did a wonderful job and was packed during the entire event. Mariko always adds a positive sharing energy to any event and it was a delight to have her!
$1 a Minute Massage with Diane of the YOU Health Center
Diane has the fingers of a Goddess! Her massage table was occupied all night long with shoppers getting energized for the season.
Our neighbors joined the festivities with fun stuff too.
Forever Young Floral Design (the BEST in Orlando) had a large table full of holiday greenery including wreaths, swags, and more at bargain prices. I saw people leaving with boxes of greenery!
Blades Hair Salon had a wonderful food spread and some amazing carolers. Not to mention the folks at Blades are just fun to be around.
Discounted shopping, free performances, old friends, and new friends...what a night! A special thanks to Ena of The Henna Studio for stopping by to bring some mylar she found that is perfect for making henna cones!
