Monday evening the Incheon Metropolitan City Dance Theatre preformed a special preformance celebrating 50 years of Sister City Friendship. The performance was held in the auditorium at Bellarmine-Jefferson High School. The room was filled with guests who had the opportunity to see one of the most well known dance companies in Korea. Incheon, South Korea is one of Burbank’s sister cities.
It was the ‘Party of the Century’. It was the 100th anniversary of the City of Burbank Incorporation into a city and two years of planning went into the event. Robert Vincent takes you to the festivities that ended with a spectacular fireworks show to end the night. Tens of thousands citizens attended the event on July 8, 2011
