  • Hip hop holiday

    Audrey Creighton became the self-appointed star of the Holiday Fest in the Springs show on Saturday when she climbed up on stage as the elves gave their seasonal admonition about pouting and crying. The afternoon’s performance at the Vernet Ecological Center featured a chorus of the Mills Lawn fifth and sixth graders and dance and vocal concerts by each of YS Kids Playhouse classes in hip-hop, ballet and singing.

    Saturday afternoon’s holiday fest at the Glen Helen’s Vernet Ecological Center was buzzing with activity — and Santa!

  • Couples synchronize their smooches

    Many villagers took part last Saturday in “The Kiss,” a performance art piece by local artist Nancy Mellon that was part of the Yellow Springs Holiday Festival. As conceived by Mellon, at 3:07 p.m. Saturday 80 couples — romantic, familial, or other — kissed at one of many kissing stations around town. Shown above are, from left, Ryan Berning and Emma Robinow at Current Cuisine, Moya Shea and Marianne MacQueen, Ed and Nancy Vernot at Friends Care Extended Living Center, and Leon Holster and Flo Lorenz, also at Current.

    Years from now, as they look back on the event, residents and visitors to Yellow Springs might not remember the exact date or year, but they’ll remember the time. 3:07 p.m. At least, that’s when the official kissing began.
