MADISON – For a glimpse of small-town life at its finest, stop by the Community Showcase at Madison Street Festival.
“Our Community Showcase stage will be located on Main Street,” Community Showcase Chair Cheri Volkin said. “We have some really fun performing-arts peeps lined up on Oct. 7.”
This stage will include dancing groups, people showing off their belly dancing and twirling skills, musical ensembles and even a balloon performance. “It is going to be one fun stage. Make sure to head up to Main Street, grab lunch, sit down and enjoy these performances,” Volkin said.
The number of Community Showcase acts has doubled since last year. It will start at 10 a.m. with BalloonMasterz Entertainment Inc., followed by students from Adoni School of Ballet at 10:30 a.m. Rocket City Twirlers will command the stage at 11 a.m. Huntsville Community Drumline will rock the stage at 11:30 a.m. and the Southern Irish Dance Tennessee team will be next at noon. Huntsville Belly Dance Company will take the stage at 12:30 p.m., followed by Rocket City HEMA at 1 p.m.
To round up the community performances, “Every Body Dance Crew” is set for 1:30 p.m., Rocket City Chorus at 2 p.m., Madison Clarinet Choir at 2:30 p.m. and Tiger Rock Martial Arts at 3 p.m.
A natural to help with Community Showcase, Volkin was a self-described ‘Band Mom.’ Her daughter played saxophone in Bob Jones High School Band and Madison City Community Orchestra.
“We have so many different types of performances that all ages will enjoy,”Volkin said. “I’m really excited about the variety we will have this year.”
“With so many artists of all sorts, as well as food vendors and local businesses, it will be a full day of activities and entertainment. This is such a wonderful way for our neighbors to get together and celebrate all that this community has to offer,” Volkin said.
