July 11th’s Second Sunday in OTR was a groovy good time! Bellydancers, a samba parade, and music from around the world rounded out the wonderful craft and food vendors, funky shops and cafes, and art galleries.

DJ Mello spinnin’ world tunes on the ones and twos. No electronic iTunes deejays here, folks. We’re talking vinyl. In crates. The real thing!

Everyone was “charmed” by the bellydancers from Anaya Gypsy and Habeeba’s. The audience even got to try a bit of hip-shaking action themselves!

A lively samba parade featuring OTR Community Samba filled the streets with rhythmic energy! Of course, more hip-shaking ensued.

Chef Daniel Wright of Senate whipped up a fantastic scallop dish and schooled a packed house on the finer points of cooking seafood at the Celebrity Chef demo. Tasty mixed drinks by Senate’s head bartender and a wine tasting sponsored by City Cellars rounded out the mini-meal. You have to get there early, though–it gets crowded quickly!
