The Sweet Colleens - Family Fun at Monkey Dance Spooktacular!




Hey folks! With Labor Day behind us, it's time to start thinking about... Halloween! And what better way to spookify your Halloween weekend than coming out to "The Sweet Colleens Second Annual Halloween Monkey Dance Spooktacular," a not-so-scary kids concert and dance party taking place the Saturday before Halloween (the 29th) at the fabulous Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis, 11 a.m. to noon. If you made it last year, you will know what fun the Spooktacular was (see the pics, below). We will have...

The Sweet Colleens rockin' songs off their acclaimed kids CD, The Monkey Dance: All the Kids Are Doin' It! The Mini-Mosh Pit, with lots of room for kids to dance and move around Interactive musical fun for the whole family. A great chance for kids to give their Halloween costumes a "dry run" before the big night. Special musical guests the wonderful Madrigals choir from Field Middle School (who promise to show up in full trick-or-treating attire!) Special prizes.

Speaking of costumes, all guests, but especially kids, are invited to wear their Halloween costumes (although please no costumes that may be offensive to others).

Mark Your Calendars! The Monkey Dance Spooktacular will take place from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday October 29, 2010, at the Cedar Cultural Center, 416 Cedar Ave S. in Minneapolis (doors open at 10:30). Admission is $12, $7 for kids age 2-12, and free for kids under 2! For tickets or more info, call the Cedar Cultural Center Box Office at 612-338-2674, or visit

If you haven't been to the Cedar before, it's a wonderful music venue. A warm, welcoming space with a great sound system. They also serve up some delicious refreshments. There's easy access. Parking is plentiful in the area, with street parking available and several ramps and lots close by. The Cedar's site has directions, a map, and parking tips.

Last year's Spooktacular was a near sellout, so reserve your tickets early! We'll see you there...and don't forget your monkey-dancing shoes! Stay tuned for more details. Sociable! --The Sweet Colleens
