The Moisture Festival presents our 12th year of high energy comedy/varietè shows featuring a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to make audiences laugh, wonder, shake their heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance. Varietè has its roots in the Music Halls of 19th century England, cabaret in Europe and vaudeville in America. Because of the talented artists currently working in this genre, it is still fresh, exciting and tremendous fun for the audience.

The next Evan's Family Variety Show should be phenomenal, with three FANTASTIC acts and a special guest! First is Nickolai Pirak. He is a juggler Evan does corporate shows with - and that we managed to get him to come to this show has us delighted. We can't WAIT for the kids to see what this guy can do! Ruben Barron is a magician - one Evan first saw when he worked a comedy club. He'd brilliant, funny, and a great guy. We have a special guest - two younger students who are working on a routine. This should be interesting and hopefully will usher in a normal process of having student guests. And finally - and ENTIRE MARCHING CORP is coming! These guys are talented and FUN - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOLpVCQ6Tkc And should really give our kids one HECK of an experience! (And we'll be doing noise tests before the show - if they are too loud we'll go outside to see them!) We are REALLY excited about this show - it should be a fantastic show for adults, and one HECK of an experience for the kids! Get tickets here: http://www.showclix.com/event/EvansFamilyVarietyShow3

On March 28th, thousands of orange eggs will fall from the sky once again at Brentwood Park as hopecity church hosts the 4th annual Code Orange Easter Egg Drop. This year, a helicopter will drop eggs onto the fields and children will have the opportunity to hunt 20,000 plastic Easter eggs at the park that day. One big change from previous years: The date is EIGHT days before Easter rather than the day before. Children will be split by age into four zones, and the hunts will be staggered by fifteen minutes. Once the eggs are on the field, children, age two through 5th grade, will be able to hunt for eggs in their designated age area. After all the eggs are found the kids will take them to an area to redeem them for candy. There will also be pictures with the Easter Bunny, games, inflatable bouncy houses, and face-painting all donated by hopecity church and everything will be available to the kids for free. We’ll give out several prizes throughout the day, and when you register you’ll be placed in the drawing for those prizes. Prizes are donated by local-only area businesses. The church is planning for over 1,000 people to be in attendance for this year’s egg drop. “We’re working very hard to make this year’s event the best one yet.  We'll have over 100 volunteers on site serving the families of SE Portland”, says Brian Becker, Lead Pastor of hopecity church. Registration is required and opens March 1st at www.CodeOrangeEaster.com. Reflecting on its purpose, Pastor Brian says “hopecity is only four years old, but we started this church with an emphasis on serving the community with no strings attached, and we think providing a great, free event like the Egg Drop is a great way to bring the community together. We call it Code Orange because it refers to a term used in the medical field meaning “top priority.” We feel kids should be our top priority and they deserve a great day to celebrate together.” For more information and pictures from last year see CodeOrangeEaster.com.
