Also on the set list will be a preview from TSA’s fall musical, Catch Me If You Can, performed by the student cast.

Expect local food trucks including  Jeanie’s Comfort Cuisine, Smash Dogs, Seed and Leaf, and Pepperoni Tony’s, a VIP area; face painting, caricatures, carnival games and a sidewalk chalk painting contest for the kids and more! A raffle of artworks produced by the TSA family is also in the mix, as is a vendor area for TSA staff, family members, friends and local artists to sell their wares.

Newly appointed Interim Principal Letha Ferguson has served on the planning committee for the Flying Pig Arts Fest for four years. “This is a great opportunity to see why TSA consistently graduates students with amazing talents in music, art, theater and dance: it’s due to the phenomenal talents of the staff and faculty that work with the students every day!” Ferguson said. “The Flying Pig Arts Fest is a great party that everyone should attend.”
