I attended last night (because of the Napa Patch post!) with my sister, daughter and niece. Napa Hoopers provided many, many extra hoops for people to use and join in. I did, and so did my teenage daughter (who loved it!) Only stayed about 30 minutes, but it was fun! The people hosting the event, are very nice and friendly.

That's super! I love watching the lights. If you check out our Porchfest gallery at http://patch.com/A-w4xD you can see a video of some of the hoopers jamming to live music.

I will check out the gallery - thanks! I also posted a photo of my daughter hoola hooping. I moved out here a year and a half ago from Detroit - even though I've spent just about every summer, since a child, in Napa on vacation. It hasn't been easy finding one location with a listing of things to do here in town. I appreciate your postings on the site. I wish I came across Napa Patch sooner.
