He sang a new song, called “Once Upon a Rhyme” a story about friendship with poetic stanzas, fascinating characters and a message of love. He generally breaks stereotypes and uses his imagination to create meaning and visualization of the stories he tells through rap music.

The Hop sold ice cream cones. A balloon artist made crazy shapes and animals for kids and Amy, from Asheville Face and Body Art, did an awesome job painting faces. Some of the designs were clearly getting kids ready for Halloween. Read the 23 Skidoo interview at http://theashevillager.com/agent-23-skidoo-interview-upcoming-show-oct-5th-asheville/
