The Freshest Snow Whyte 
Fans of past Hip Hop shows at Imagination Stage will love this radical update of a familiar fairytale. Set in the year 3,000, we meet Snow Whyte—a graffiti-artist locked in competition with her arch rival, Kanye East, over which of them makes the “freshest” images in the universe. Both depend on a Simon Cowell-type celebrity called Mira to decide which of them is the best. SatEvent details.

Skher Brown and the Dancing Warriors

Heart Centered Family Yoga 
Gather for Valentine’s Day at Heart-Centered Family Yoga, where you’ll be mixing science with yoga to focus on the mechanics of your “physical heart,” as well as the soulful expression of our “spiritual heart” through connection, compassion and joy! In addition to heart openers and connecting group poses, we will discuss ways to keep both of our hearts strong and balanced. SunEvent details.


Waterfowl Festival
Bring the whole family for a day filled with activities, demonstrations, and exhibits to celebrate the wondrous water birds that call Little Seneca Lake home during the winter. There will be lectures on bird conservation, gorgeous carved wood decoys made right before your eyes. SatEvent details.
