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.
