Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk for Modesto, California!
This year we will be walking around MJC East Campus during the International Heritage Festival. We had a blast photographing downtown last year and I'm sure it'll be as much fun this year as well. We will meet at 10:30am in front of the Performing & Media Arts Center (corner of Coldwell Ave and South Dr).
You must register at the official Worldwide Photo Walk webpage at http://tinyurl.com/mkgd728 to be eligible to submit your images and possibly win some really nice prizes. (Registration is optional but highly encouraged). There are 50 spots available. To accommodate photographers from all ages and physical capabilities, I didn't set a formal path. You may walk around MJC as much or little as you wish.
You can use any type of object that captures an image (i.e. camera, cellphone, pinhole box, etc.). All ages welcome as well, so encourage the young folks to come out and discover the passion of photography!
NOTE: For some reason, I couldn't edit the previous meetup I had setup for this event. My apologies to those who had RSVP'd.
Below is some information in regards to the International Heritage Festival:
International Heritage Festival set for Oct. 5th. It’s the ultimate trip around the world.
(Modesto, CA – Aug. 17, 2013) – Get ready for the ultimate trip around the world at the 22nd annual International Heritage Festival. This year’s voyage takes place Oct. 5 at a new location – Modesto Junior College (MJC) East Campus, 435 College Ave. in Modesto. A patriotic “Americana Opening” kicks off the Festival and includes a colorful parade of flags with participants in beautiful international dress.
Also attending the festival will be the Silver Star Queen and her court of princesses from Modesto’s sister city in Vernon, Canada. These young ladies travel as ambassadors of Vernon. During the International Festival, “passengers” travel around the world through music, dance, food, and children’s crafts. Children can visit country displays, collect stamps and stickers, and have fun learning about geography, history, music, and art.
The International Heritage Festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event showcases the kaleidoscope of heritages from the local area and celebrates a shared American heritage. The all-volunteer, non-profit International Festival Committee organizes the event. It is made possible through generous sponsorships and participation of local businesses, organizations and individuals.
