Day 172 – Celery Ball
What a splendid evening! The sold out Celery Ball 2014 in Sanford took place on Saturday, March 8th and I am so happy that we were able to witness and be part of such a perfectly planned and fun event!
The theme alone, The Great Gatsby, promised to be nothing else but grandiose but it was as usual the people in attendance who made this event even more magnificent! I was truly impressed by the outfits of both, ladies and gentlemen. Feather boas, long gloves and sparkly head pieces oh my! Creative Sanford Inc. (who organized the event to benefit Celery Soup, Florida’s Folk Life Play) also picked the perfect location: an airport hangar at the Southeast ramp at the Sanford International Airport. There were lots of old timer cars and planes on display which made the event even more exclusive. Add in great music, food, drinks and cigars and you have yourself a true 1920s ball!
Thank you to everyone involved for all you did to make this an unforgettable evening! I am already looking forward to attending next year’s event!
