Jeff and Abbi McBride, and the
Vegas Vortex present…
FALL FEST HARVEST
Thursday October 25th-
Sunday October 28th, 2007
Four days and nights
of Mystery, Magic, Music and Fire!
Fall Fest is a four day long ritual of the
elements, held in and around Las Vegas, and is our community gathering of
Harvest, Love and Gratitude.
Earth: We begin the ritual as we gather
to feast and reconnect the strands of our web.
We celebrate the many gifts we share, with voice, poetry, chant, dance,
costume, mask and ritual, with your MCs Spinner and Magnus, Sheila Z, and DJ
Sylvia Brallier, featuring belly dancers, and the
Mystery School magicians and a midnight Halloween seance.
We spend a night from sundown to sunrise, in the desert, honoring the ancestors,
at BoneDance, our all-night drum and dance
Alchemical Fire Ritual.
Water: We reflect our light in the waters
of bliss on our last night of homecoming together, deepening and nurturing our
relationships in community.
Come to sing, to drum, to dance, to make magic, to play,
laugh and have one heck of a good time!
Come to fill up, to re-fuel, and to Fall… in love. Give yourself the
free gift of open eyes, clear minds and loving hearts in this opportunity for
community. Feel the pull of the Vegas
