YCC Success

After many many long months of practice. The YCC (Youth Cultural Celebration) was a HUGE success. Many of the leaders, parents and youth were wondering if all of these hours and hours of practice would be worth it. Scouting programs were put on hold, youth activities were put on hold and many schedules were re-arranged just to make this happen. Many families gave up a lot to be involved in this event. After all is said and done, everyone that I have talked to has said it was totally wort it.

The Celebration was Awesome. Many times during the performance I was litterally brought to tears knowing how much work was put into the production and to see it blossom like it did was just amazing.

If you were to ask anyone in the stake if they would do it all again, I am almost certain that they would all say YES, it was completely and totally worth it.

Here are some snap shots that someone else took of the celebration. You really had to be there to completely appreciate how well this performance was presented.

I'm glad we went to watch it. It looked like an awesome thing to be a part of.

Where did this take place? I don't recognize it. I love that it was outdoors. It looks awesome! I know what you mean about the work. We had one a few years ago and it was really hard to get the kids enthusiastic about it, and then the costumes. It looks like yours turned out spectacular!

The YCC took place at the Filer Fair Grounds. This performance was done on the floor of the rodeo arena. It was beautifully transformed into a stage for all of the youth of the Magic Valley.
