Five years ago, a Holiday tradition was born in our city through music, celebrating peace:
A very special thanks to Urban XChange for generously hosting donation stations in 2017.
We are Artists 4 Life in the Sound
Original foods from Tatanka to Vegetarian fare, we enjoy better quality foods than your average American town.
Great style doesn't have to cost you much: Retro and Northwest fashion at stores like Retrospect and Manedlin's on 6th Ave, or Urban Xchange downtown are excellent places to find your special holiday styles.
We read a lot - it's a Northwest thing. Consider discovering a reading community fit for kings. .
What have we missed?
Suggest an experience - Hidden neighborhood gems are all over town; share, and we will include what we missed.
A rich historical heritage of varied and original voices is the inheritance of our people. We call it the 'South Sound' for a reason. Click pic for music, and listen to sounds from our town while you search.
The Spirit of Destiny is live.

Love your body, be happier.
Release the stress, enjoy meeting new friends and gain in knowledge from those showing the rest of us the simple techniques that lead to better daily life, including greater health and personal vitality.
All over town are great options for all kinds of yoga, dance, pilates, massage and more . .
Artists 4 Life in the Sound sponsored 40+ local businesses in our city when 25,000 maps in 2013 were distributed city-wide. We charged them nothing, and encouraged others by word of mouth to patronize these businesses because they well represent the character and quality of our local community economy. We have continued this tradition every year since, and this year we bring more.
