Lunar year celebrations? Soltice recognition?

Obviously we have some very active wicca practitioners locally. Hopefully, not a bunch of Luciferians…

Come out for Freedom Festival at the Cultural Center in Columbia City!
Arts In Motion once again partners with SEEDArts to present an exhilarating celebration of freedom Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011 at 7pm, on stage at SE Seattle’s premiere community performing arts center, the Rainier Valley Cultural Center at 3515 S Alaska St.

Freedom Festival 2011 will continue in the tradition of honoring the spirit of MLK Day celebrations and the eternal struggles for freedom and social justice. This upcoming Freedom Festival aims to top last January’s sensational performance, the happy echoes of that show still resonating in the community buzz.
