Benat Serat @ Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival 2015

4

Went out to the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival with the Benat Serat bellydance troupe today, where they unveiled a new dance involving these silk covered fans. The silk would trail out, catching on the air and breeze, creating a gorgeous stream of color.

The uni-cyclist juggler was also pretty fun to watch.

    Wow. Beautiful picture. What a photo of the day…the way all the different people are caught within the folds of the silk….
