In its sixth year, the West Linn Street Dance takes over much of the historic downtown Willamette area of West Linn on Saturday July 13. The 2008 inaugural Street Dance was a revival of a long ago tradition in the town of Willamette, as a celebration of the centennial of the town Willamette. People loved it so much that it has continued.
This year’s event arrives during the 100 year anniversary year of the incorporation of West Linn as an official city in the state of Oregon.
The festivities for the Street Dance are held at Willamette Falls Drive and 13th in Historic Willamette.
John English, who is known as “The Voice,” will kick things off at 5 p.m. with a “Tribute to Frank Sinatra,” while juggler Mag Hughes will perform for the kids from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., then Pressure Point takes the stage from 8 p.m. till 11 p.m. for the actual dancing in the streets.
Face painting will be available for kids and a beer garden will be on top for their parents. Other food and beverages will be available for purchase during this family friendly music-filled night of dancing in the streets.
West Linn Parks & Recreation are the sponsors of this fun tradition.
