DJ Afrosia J and Marty Shutter played live music; Kat Wilson, Trisha Guting, Danny Baskin, Craig Colorusso, Rob Gordon & Ashley Kaye had art installed; and Explorative Dance Love, Blake Worthy with Amos Cochran, and NWA Ballet all performed original routines. Local award-winning author Elle Nash even did tarot card readings. Find out who won the awards here.
