To the Journal editor:
I am so excited about the upcoming Halloween Spectacle that the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is putting together for Saturday from 7-8 p.m. at the Marquette Commons.
At first, the hardest decision for me was what part to play? There are so many cool and amazing pieces in the performance. This is like the Cirque de Soleil coming to Marquette, but rather than pay for a ticket, I get to be in the performance!
I attended the first full rehearsal this past weekend and was absolutely amazed at the participation of so many talented and busy people. This is such a cool city. The Marquette Arts and Culture Center is operating on a diminished budget this year and is still providing huge opportunities for art and culture.
I donated my $50 to the Downtown Development Authority to support the Arts and Culture Center and projects like the Halloween Spectacle.
I hope you will come to the event so many have been preparing for: Saturday at 7 p.m. If you would like to match me in financially supporting art programs like these, please contact Mona Lang at the DDA at 228-9475.
