 Oscar Night, February 26, 2012

Once again, Akumal's Lol Ha Theatre was hosting the Academy Awards event, and a large crowd turned out for the event.  However, the number of 'stars' walking the red carpet seemed to be a bit fewer than in years past.  Some have said it might have been the competing event, CEA's Waves of Change Festival, which was hosting Vibrations of Fire and Water at Plaza Ukana.

Whatever, the Lol Ha staff did it again, with another well organized and run event.  Of course, as one might expect, there were some disappointments on some of the Oscar winners.  The main thing, a good time was had by all.  Wait 'til next year.
