This festival, which runs for 2.5 months, is a unique event that really wowed us. We took the trolley from the satellite parking lot and arrived at the grounds. The art exhibit in the grounds is impressive and it's fun to talk to the artists about their work, as well as visit the gift shop. As to the actual Pageant show, over the years it has added more technology to enhance the experience, and the special effects are very well done. Before one sees any actual tableaux vivants, however, there is an entertaining lead-up that seems to take too long. We were there to see the tableaux and patiently waited for the pre-tableaux part to be over. Due to the unique nature of the show, the Pageant was just as awe-inspiring in the days of the simpler production when it didn't cater so much to the trend for special effects which seems to be for the purpose of attracting a younger audience. We come to see the traditional experience and to introduce the younger generation to the skills and artistic appreciation of a simpler time. Loved the tableaux and appreciate all the work and care that went into this year's production.
