Kudos For "Light In Winter" Festival

Congratulations to the Light In Winter festival of the arts and sciences as it closes, today, another successful run.

The intrepid off-season festival braves certain frost and potential blizzard to bring Ithaca a captivating amalgam of events - of music, dance, and magic; about astronomy, physics, math, cuisine - at venues large and small around town and on campus.

Also deserving praise are the festival's many generous supporters - large and small businesses, the colleges, and many individual donors, as well as many volunteers.

Not to mention the people of Ithaca, who will go out in single-digit temperatures on a Saturday night in January and fill the State Theater to see dance rather than sit home and watch TV.

Thanks again, Light In Winter. Now: only three weeks until GrassRoots Festival tickets go on sale.
