    Zoppé Italian Family Circus swings into Rawhide Western Town, December 10-19, 2021

    Chandler, ArizonaZoppé Italian Family Circus, with its multi-generational cast of characters, will be creating a blend of holiday magic previously not experienced in the Valley. As if stepping into the past, the 179-year-old Zoppé truly is an ‘old-world event for the whole family, with its single ring adorned with a classic, domed cupola that embraces its spectators and pulls them into the performance. Presented by Relentless Beats and Rawhide Western Town and Event Center, fans were given a sneak peek at these performing artists during Goldrush Music Festival. Guests will be entertained by high-flying trapeze artists, Italian clowns, Spanish webs, aerial hoops, contortionists, jugglers, fire dancers, a balancing baby, and much more.

    “The Zoppé circus evokes something from a picture book: the clown, the trapeze, the dancing dogs, the ring and the tent. The show is frozen in a time long before the high-concept, high-dollar Cirque du Soleil.” – The New York Times

    Keeping with the spirit of the holidays going, Rawhide Western Town and Event Center will be hosting Rawhide Snowy Christmas, where the magic of the season sings “Let it Snow” all season long, with nightly snowfall down Main Street. Beginning on Thanksgiving Thursday, November 25, the Town will illuminate with over a million lights and be decked out with holiday décor through December 18, 2021. Holiday festivities are open every Friday and Saturday from 5-10 pm, and admission and parking are free. Santa leads the official tree lighting ceremony at 6 pm and kicks off the first snowfall before being available for photos all evening. In addition, guests can purchase attraction wristbands for cowboy stunt shows, rides, crafts, inflatables, and more.

    What: Zoppé Italian Family Circus, Presented by Relentless Beats

    Dates: December 10 – 19, 2021 (TICKET OPTIONS)

    Event Location: Rawhide Western Town

    EVIT Cosmetology students plan Fantasy Hair Show

    The EVIT Power Campus in southeast Mesa will be transformed into a creative fantasy world this month when the school’s Cosmetology students host their annual hair show.

    This event returns to the East Valley Institute of Technology after having to be canceled last year due to COVID protocols. It will feature fantasy avant-garde looks and hairstyles from different decades in elaborate displays with the students as models. About 200 Cosmetology students are expected to participate.

    The show is 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 10 at the Power Campus, 6625 S. Power Road. Tickets are $5 (cash only); there is no charge for children 10 and younger.

    Instructor Sarah Liu said the students have been preparing for this event since October after submitting their styles to the faculty for approval. Each group of students selected a fantasy theme. Then they started working on backdrops, costumes, hairstyles and makeup styles. The end product will be a fantasy land of displays, models and twinkling lights winding through the halls of the Power Campus.

    “Our industry is creative and requires a lot of teamwork. This allows students to work as teams to put on a show,” Liu said. “It allows parents and family to come and see what their students have been working on and it builds our community. It gives the students a chance to show off their creative side with something exciting and different.”

    Cosmetology is one of EVIT’s most popular career training programs for high school students and adults. The program, which is offered at the Power Campus and the EVIT Main Campus, 1601 S. Main St., Mesa, is tuition-free for public, charter, private and home-schooled high school students who reside in the East Valley. A tuition-based Cosmetology program for adults is also offered at the Main Campus.

    Cosmetology students receive technical training in the theory of chemicals and hair coloring, cutting, client safety, hygiene and customer relations. Second-year students provide services to the public in working salons at the Power and Main campuses. After completing the 1600-hour course, they are prepared to take the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology licensing exam.

    EVIT Cosmetology students also have the opportunity to follow a credit pathway that flows from EVIT to their state board licensure to an associate degree at Mesa Community College to a bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University. They can go on from there to earn a master’s degree from ASU. The pathway is offered in partnership with ROLFS Salon and L’Oreal.

    EVIT is currently enrolling for 2022-23. High school students can start the enrollment process by going to: www.evit.com/enroll. Adults can fill out an application at: https://weareevit.formstack.com/forms/adult_app. To request more information about high school or adult programs, fill out a request form at: www.evit.com/requestinfo.

    EVIT students have a 98% high school graduation rate, 2 out of 3 go on to college and 94% are in jobs related to their training, college or the military within a year of completing their program. Cosmetology students often go on to be self-employed and operate their own business.

    For more information about EVIT, visit www.evit.com. For more information about the EVIT Power Annual Fantasy Hair Show, call (480) 308-4602.

    Predicting the NFL playoff picture

    Things are really starting to heat up in the NFL with the playoffs just around the corner. In the NFC, it’s the Arizona Cardinals who sit atop the standings at (9-2), followed closely by the Green Bay Packers who are (9-3) and have a bye this week after beating a very solid LA Rams team. In the AFC, the Ravens, Patriots, and Titans take the top three spots with eight wins a piece. My number one team to look out for is the Kansas City Chiefs. After starting the season (3-4), they’ve won four straight and are fresh off a bye week, as they prepare to face off with the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

    This is the first year where I can’t seem to really grasp at a Super Bowl prediction. In the NFC, both the Cardinals and Packers are struggling to stay healthy. The Buccaneers, Cowboys and Rams have all had very questionable losses in the last three weeks, and seeing how the 49ers have handled their last two opponents, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them near the top of the NFC in January. This brings us to the AFC, where my feelings are similar. The Ravens are coming off an ugly win against the Browns. The Patriots are a massive question mark in my mind, mainly because they’re led by rookie quarterback Mac Jones who has been outstanding so far. You can easily argue that the Patriots have the best defense in the league, but it’s hard to trust a rookie to lead you to the Super Bowl. The Titans have been beaten by both the Texans and Jets, therefore putting them in the lower tier of playoff teams for me. That brings me back to the Chiefs who are currently in fourth place waiting to pounce on that top spot.

    If you really forced me to give you a Super Bowl prediction, I’m most tempted to say it’ll be a rematch of last year’s championship game between the Chiefs and Buccaneers.

    Week 13 of the NFL season kicks off tomorrow with the Dallas Cowboys visiting the New Orleans Saints. And the Cardinals are back in action after their bye week, with a trip to Chicago to take on the (4-7) Bears.
