Around Town-Oakland, CA

Pics and links related to the new Oakland Food Connection farmers' market in the Laurel district, the Oakland Museum of California's "Cool ReMixed" exhibit, the annual "Stepping in Shades of Brown" Chicago stepping event at Sweet's Ballroom, the Chinatown Street Festival, and more dancing at Anton's.
Some notes: The pics from the "ReMixed" exhibit are from the Museum's website. I used up the memory in my camera for the dance battle and you can find clips at You Tube. There are also some Chicago stepping videos as well. All of these were great events, but I was especially impressed with the "Cool Remixed" exhibit for the simple reason that I've never seen so many teenagers at a museum on their own will, including some I've taught. Their efforts in connecting with young people was quite impressive.
