PREBLE COUNTY – The Star Theatre at Eagles Point hosted its first annual Cinco De Mayo party, offering activities for children ages 5-10 on May 5, in the Gymnasium at Eagles Point.
Volunteers worked to assist Lisa Marling, the director of the theatre, to create a fun-filled, yet educational experience for the children and their families. G&G Sounds provided music for both dancing, and the cakewalk game. Attendees were able to enjoy fishing for prizes; eating make-your-own-tacos which were provided by The Bistro at Eagles Point and tres leches cake made by Marisol Ceron from Richmond, Indiana; making flowers at the Preble County Art Association table; hearing stories in both English and Spanish; and the real “hit” of the day – breaking the piñatas every half hour.
”It was a fiesta,” Marling said.
Plans are under way for future community events, and The Star Theatre is moving forward to provide live theatre, film, music, PrebleTalks, and other events in both the theatre and gymnasium, according to Marling.
This event was open to all children ages 5-10 and their families. Admission was $1 and a food, paper, or hygiene item which will be donated to the HIT Foundation.
