It included a social media lounge, a photo experience by Photo Mingle, a retail area and of course a stage for performances and panel discussions. A DJ was spinning on the ones and twos and it truly was a party. I can’t begin to tell you the number of times I did the Wobble line dance over the weekend and I enjoyed it every single time!
This was the culmination of an action packed, fun filled weekend that I will never forget. I may still be recovering from the fatigue of long days and nights but the memories of this experience will last a lifetime.
Also, a wonderful panel about the upcoming tv movie “The Watsons Go to Birmingham” sponsored by Walmart which will air on the Hallmark channel this fall. Once again, I had the opportunity to chat with the talented Tonya Lewis Lee, producer and writer of the screen play.
I am so very thankful to Walmart for the opportunity and must say that if you ever have a chance to attend the Essence Fest - TAKE IT! All of the convention center activities are free and many of the performers from the mainstage at the Super Dome make appearances. Again, my trip to Essence was a dream come true and I can’t possible post all of my photos in this post but here is a video summary and you can visit my instagram, twitter and facebook page for more photos from this experience.

Disclosure: I am a participant in the Walmart Moms Social Media program, all of my expenses related to the visit to the Essence Music Festival were covered by Walmart and I was compensated for my time and effort to create this post. All opinions are my own.
