Due to the snow emergency in Saratoga Springs, festival organizers are asking that people driving in for the festival please carpool as much as possible and pay attention to Saratoga Springs snow removal notices when parking your cars.
Shuttles will be running from many local hotels, and a shuttle schedule can be found here:http://www.flurryfestival.org/directions.html
What is the Flurry Festival?
The Flurry Festival is this weekend in Saratoga Springs and once again, this year’s lineup is jam-packed with fun. Combining traditional social dance and live music, The Flurry is a feel-good festival that livens up the Saratoga Hilton and the Saratoga City Center and other venues in Saratoga Springs for three days; February 14th-16th 2013.
We’ve attended the Flurry Festival the past several years and it’s something we all look forward to! The kids really enjoy singing, dancing, hearing a storyteller, playing and learning. We attended several fun events last year like an African drumming workshop, kids concerts, family dances, and a couple storytellers.
Festival goers of all ages will enjoy a major lineup of international music and dance experiences, featuring events like an African Jive Dancapalooza, Cajun dance parties, Regional Greek Folk dances, Irish singing, Yodeling, Yiddish square dancing, Scandinavian Dance party, as well as many more international dance, music, and singing sessions.
