Eagle Point will be Dancing in the Streets on Saturday, Aug. 13. You and all your friends and relations are invited to enjoy a good old-fashioned gathering on Main Street. It all begins at 2 p.m. and continues until 9:30 p.m. Main Street from Platt to Royal will be blocked off. There will be an ample supply of hay bales for seating.
They are still seeking all types of art that can be done on the spot–from rattle can to charcoal, pencil, watercolor– it can be done by the youngest to the oldest. Artists can sell their work but in lieu of an entry fee, give the city a piece of art. Then from 5-7:30 p.m. The Butcher Shop will have hot dogs for $3, hamburgers for $5. Both include chips and a drink, Proceeds will go to Boy Scout Troop 48.
Jim Lane and the Renegades will play danceable music from 7-9:30 p.m. And for those a bit bashful about getting out on Main St. and dancing, there will be a dance coach offering free line dance lessons. Tanya DeHart from Evergreen Ballroom will do the teaching honors.
Cam from The Butcher Shop is donating sidewalk chalk and fingerpainting supplies for the kids.
See the ad on page 9 for an art entry. For questions call 541-826-4212 ext. 106 or 541-621-7258. Dancing in the Streets is sponsored by the City of Eagle Point and is another one of the Eagle Point Centennial celebrations.
