  • SeeThree Local bands, that are sure to get people dancing, along with four Dance Companies that will grace the stage.
  • Eat – Food Trucks will be on site the whole day.

The event will feature artists and their works, performances, and plenty of things to eat and drink, including smoothies, barbecue, Bocce pizza, gourmet ice cream sandwiches, and beverages for all ages, so be sure to bring the whole family along. Performers include Clark Academy Dance Center, Gaitrie Devi, Configuration Dance Theatre, Center Dance, Organ Fairchild, The Brass Machine, and Black Rock Zydeco.
