Phoenix Center kicks up high heels at Ye-Ha Hoedown


The Phoenix Center held its first Ye-Ha Hoedown this past weekend with food, vendors and drag performances.

The party was at the Reisch Pavillion at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. At least 300 people came through the hoedown enjoying food truck offerings and performances by local drag artists Mahogany Knight, Deanna Knight, Jacqueline Knight and J Estallado Knight. The event was free but people could get VIP seating through EventBrite.
