What: Big Hair Country Fair
Where: Fair Market
The lowdown: On Saturday, February 24, arts nonprofit Creative Action hosted Big Hair Country Fair, its eighth annual "anti-gala." Attendees at the Fair Market soiree were treated to an evening of over-the-top hairdos, carnival games, special student performances, and more.
Hosted by Carly Christopher, guests were treated to cocktails from Deep Eddy Vodka and Austin Eastciders, as well has complimentary hairdos courtesy of Ritual Salon. (After all, you know what they say about the higher the hair ....)
Among the evening's highlights was a performance from Creative Action’s Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble who performed an original song entitled, "My Voice."
In all, the evening's ticket sales and donations totaled more than $385,000, which goes directly towards funding Creative Action's interactive classroom performances, after school arts residencies, and community-based arts programs in Central Texas.
