Part I of T@T 2014
The season began on May 20 with a lively two hours thanks to many talented, enthusiastic students from Near North Montessori School (NNM) and the Adventure Stage's Trailblazers. 


Near North Montessori Choir

NNM's orchestra, violinists, singers and dancers all performed a variety of work and they were enjoyed and supported by a large audience that increased as people came and went on various modes of transportation… bicycles, bus, train, foot and car. 


Trailblazer flash mob brought smiles to many faces

Using a flash mob technique, the Trailblazers greeted people coming and going on public transportation. Travelers were cheered, applauded, photographed and given balloons and  pieces of paper printed with things like "Keep being awesome!" 


Trailblazers offered a birthday party too

At other spots on the Triangle there was a birthday party and a place to turn trash to art.

Let it just be said that it was so wet on May 27 that only the organizers were present until they were swept away by the falling rain!
