After stumbling upon a project by It Can Change, a few emails later asking for advice, we decided to create our own Piñata Party.

We asked participants to construct a piñata for display and destruction. First we offered a 2-night piñata workshop where people could learn how to make a piñata. For the night of the event we began with a kids piñata party. Later on, the “adults” had a go at the piñatas. Before and between bands spectators where asked to destroy piñatas.

In collaboration with My Masterpiece Will Be A Burning Museum, a piñata wall was constructed which held the bands’ 5 guitarist and lead singer until they busted through with candy flying and music blasting!

Plus, this amazing band from North Carolina, Bellafea, rocked the house (see video below)!
