Get ready for Trolloween

October 28th, 2015 by Sara

From The Fremont Arts Council :

Trolloween is the birthday party for the Fremont Troll. The celebration party starts at 7 PM sharp on HALLOWEEN OCTOBER 31st, and after the performance, marches away through the community en mass.

Trolloween’s performances have included variety/comedy shows, dramas of trolls, musicals about trolls, Greek myths, Dr. Faust, Dante’s Inferno, Scottish folktales, and Don Juan. With comedy, drama, dance, songs, and special effects, a fractured version is emerge again to entertain the many masked and costumed attendees. A costume walk over the stage will occur before the annual Haunt of Fremont, a march around Fremont with a band and all in outrageous costumes.

Come before 7pm and march away by 8pm, or be left in the settling dust and lingering sounds of their rebellious laughter. And join them after the procession for TROLL-A-GOGO, a Fun-raiser for the Fremont Arts Council. Join them at Fremont Doric Hall at 619 N 36th St for a costume contest and dance party! Music by Legendary Tiny Giants and a bar featuring OUTLANDER BREWING! It’s free for FAC members and Troll-o-ween volunteers and $5 for public. Become a member HERE.

Email volunteer@fremontartscouncil.org to get involved!

Come to a Troll-o-ween Workshop!

October 26th, 2015 by Sara

The Sweet Spot in Fremont is once again collecting new and gently used coats to donate to the International Rescue Committee a non-profit which provides emergency relief, lifesaving care and aids in the resettlement of refuges forced to flee their homes and countries due to war or disaster.

They are also donating to Jubilee Women’s Center, which supports women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures by providing safe, affordable and supportive community housing and educational resources to empower each woman to become financially independent, regardless of her circumstances.

Sweet Spot writes:
