Great Cedar Exhibition Hall: Foxwoods Casino,Ledyard, CT

Not as garish as one might have expected for a casino in the middle of Nowhere, CT and it was spotless with plenty of stalls. No, I was not here to play the slots, though one of the ladies I had lunch with did stay on to do so. We gathered to see DIANA:A CELEBRATION which runs through Jan. 15. The exhibition of Spenser family history and Diana memoribilia included home films of her childhood (adorable), items she owned as a child (kind of creepy), her actual wedding dress (awful), a room about her funeral (simultaneously sappy and moving) and a display of her clothing from start to finish (most look better in the photographs of her in them than on the mannequins). Part of the proceeds of the exhibit go to Diana’s foundation which is a nice thing.
