The blog is back after a few months of hibernation.  You’ll find out that my posts will be shorter and more focused on the images rather than my words. That being said, let’s jump into the latest post!

This past Monday was Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day and there were many celebrations through-out the city, state, and nation.  One particular celebration was the King Holiday Expo at Gannon University.  It was the second anniversary of the expo, where arts and entertainment help us to reflect on our dreams.

After each performance, each act was asked to share their dreams in life.  Future doctors, nurses, scientists, college grads, music artists, dancers and more performed their talents in front of the crowd at the Hammermill Center.  Erie City Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. was in attendance and spoke a few words to the crowd. I think he said it best when he spoke to the audience about having dreams and how important they are, but they can’t be dreams for too long…you have to make them a reality.

The acts who performed included artists such as Brittany Morton, Devious, Syce, McDowell Dance Team, Fairview Dance Team, Heavenly Soldiers, Cadence, Alliyah Durr, Intercession, Lady Mac, Eastern Stars Gospel Mimes, the Shaw High School Marching Band and more.

Check out the photos below and see the entire gallery with over 130 photos from the event by clicking here.  Don’t forget, you can purchase the photos too!  Keep supporting the dreams and keep supporting the scene!
