Hunter Nichols' "The Cahaba River"

Welcome to the Cahaba River Fry-Down! We'll begin with this piece by Hunter Nichols to help us remember why we are all here, celebrating and protecting the Cahaba River!

Alabama residents of all walks of life share their memories and connection to the Cahaba River in this film by Hunter Nichols. Smithsonian Magazine has heralded the Cahaba as one of the most biologically rich rivers in the nation. As the river gains fame, residents wonder if the river will maintain this status. Many threats face the river and its unique aquatic life.


Luminarts Entertainment

One of our favorite Fry-Down entertainers is Luminarts Entertainment! They bring professional fire and LED light performances to the Greater Birmingham Area. Their performers come from a variety of backgrounds including dance, theater, cheerleading and martial arts. The group focuses on exciting and unique choreography with an emphasis on prop manipulation and dance. We are insured and follow North American Fire Arts Association (NAFAA) fire safety guidelines.

Luminarts Entertainment provides exciting and different performance options including fire performers, fire eaters, LED dancers, jugglers, balloon twisters, circus-style hoopers and more. They are available for corporate events, birthdays, weddings, private parties, festivals and any other venue or event seeking live entertainment.
