Silver State Feis Update

Silver State Feis Update

We’re three weeks out from the big day and we’re going a little nuts making sure we have covered all of our bases. We did a site visit at the high school last week and we couldn’t have landed a more perfect spot. The layout is super convenient and spacious and the scenery around the school kind of makes you forget that you are in Las Vegas.

We have had a more normal “springtime” this year and, as of our visit last week, there was still a bunch of snow on Mt. Charleston. In fact, we had just gotten a lot of rain in the valley so the mountain got the snow. We’re hoping that, because the weather has been so mild, that we won’t have too hot of a weekend when everyone is here for the feis.

Our medals arrived yesterday. They are amazing! Our feis chair and designer did an incredible job. We showed them to our dancers yesterday and they all said they better step it into high gear so they can earn a few at the feis. If that’s not an endorsement, i don’t know what is.

This is our first year, and we know to expect a few bumps here and there. But we’re really excited. We hope that all of you really enjoy the day.

We are finalizing our food trucks for the day. Once those contracts have been signed, we will put out the name with tentative menus.¬†Already confirmed is Sambalatte. They will be inside at the concessions selling coffee and tea on the day. They won’t have their whole menu available but should be able to satisfy your cravings.

We want to give the Cleary School of Irish Dance a big shout out for lending us stages and other supplies, as well as support, to help us make this first feis a reality.
