Native American Horsemanship or Michael Jackson Tribute?

So here’s a question for ya’ll:


Tomorrow starts our Summer Camp Program.  Originally I had planned to have the theme Native American Horsemanship.  For the Camp Show the kids would be bareback, in costume and the horse’s would have their rhythm beads and be painted.  In light of recent events, I’m thinking a Michael Jackson Tribute may be more fitting.  I would choreograph a routine for the kids and horses to ride to Thriller, dressed as MJ and Zombies.  I like to choreograph dance/riding routines I can turn them out pretty quick.


Which concept sounds more interesting?


Thanks for your help!


UPDATE! 6/29/09

I went with Theresa’s suggestion and we voted on the concept.  If you can believe, it was a unanimous vote for the Michael Jackson Tribute!  I’m super happy about the outcome because that is what I really wanted to do.  I’m shattered over the death of Michael Jackson and I am glad to do a unique tribute to his life and music.

    Ask the kids which one they want to do. (They may be too young to know who Michael Jackson is!)
