Get your creative, crafty juices going for Diorama-rama
The annual Diorama-rama is coming up, but there still is plenty of time to grab an old New Balance box, flip it on its side, and turn it into a scene -- just like you did in elementary school.
Organizer Sarah Heimer said past dioramas have included mythological or cowboy scenes, Candyland and a princess bedroom.
"I'm always totally amazed at what people come up with," Heimer said.
The Diorama-rama starts at 7 p.m. March 6 at Sacred Heart Music Center, and whether you've made a scene or not, you're invited to drop in and check out other
people's visions until 1 a.m. This is the fourth year of the event that drew more than 100 entries last year.
There are no real rules, Heimer said. And the box can be any size.
For more information, contact Heimer at email@example.com , or look for the event on Facebook.
