The City Seen: February 21

Notes from the weekend


City last weekend got to experience award season as Roc Awards 2016 recognized some of Rochester's talent.

Starting with the red carpet entrance, event goers arrived in style, with custom made gowns by designers Nathaniel Johnson, Arlene Sutherland, and Tonya Casino. Photographers, like Jay Ceaz and Chris Johnson, were able to capture the action and give the whole event the feeling of Hollywood glamour.

The show handed out awards in 42 categories nominated and voted by the Rochester community, as well as honored Joe Brown and Janet Lomax. And much like the televised awards shows, there were performances by local dance groups, such as Generation X, and musical performances by The Suburban Plaza.
