The Main Stage was a big attraction mainly for all the lovely dancers who performed middle eastern belly dancing, polynesian dancing, Las Vegas-style review and country western at the Summer Art & Wine Festival. The event was sponsored by the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce and held August 14 and 15, 1999, on Milpitas Blvd., Milpitas California.

Here Evelyn Chua announces the next performers as an enthusiastic crowd applauds and gets their cameras and camcorders ready. Come take a look at the photos I took. Next to some of photos are links that will lead to more pictures of the performers, as I add more to this photo album in the next few days. Many thanks to Hong Quach at Q Photo, 111 N. Milpitas Blvd., for doing such a spectacular job at color- and brightness-correcting these photos for me.
