Flying Shoes is 15!

15th Birthday Party!

We loved the celebration on Friday, December 4, 2020!  Thanks to everyone who joined us for the mayhem!  You can see the virtual All Comers Band here, and until Dec 18, you can listen to the pre-party radio show on WBFY here. And you can take as long as you wish to make all six of the BFS cake recipes (below). Hurrah!




The December 4 party features the basic ingredients of every BFS birthday bash:

  • Silly Hats – (wear your fave!)
  • The All Comers Band  –  The v-ACB video + more!
  • Dances
    • (virtual) Community Dance, Chrissy Fowler calling
    • (virtual) Contra Dance, Claire Takemori calling
  • Announcements
  • Social Break – Connect!
  • Tasty Treats – Our usual Tantalizing Tower of Cupcakes & Clementines remains in storage till next year, but here’s our idea for having our (virtual) cake and eating it too:
    1) Bake a cake, using your own recipe or one of our favorites. (Raelin created handy recipe cards, below or here!)
    2) Have your cake and candles ready for the tasty treat break on Friday.

Pre-party: WBFY is aired a special “Flying Shoes is 15” radio show on Friday Dec 4th. Tune in while you’re waiting for the party to start! Created by ACB bass player Vic Tredwell and BFS Board Pres Bruce Snider, and co-hosted by BFS co-founders Annadeene & Tom Fowler, it’s in the on demand archives until December 18.

  • 6:00- 7:00pm – WBFY Radio Program
