Aberdeen-Hoquiam Street Dance
Co-hosted by The Friends of The Aberdeen Museum and the Polson Museum, the dance will include music from two bands.
From 1 to 4 it is Stan The Man and the Harbor All Stars featuring Stan Foreman, Dave Reed, Bruce Hughes and Maitland Ward. They will be playing music from the 60s and 70s. From 4 to 7 we will have 8 Second Ride from Tacoma. They will be playing country western music.
Bring a chair, sit back and enjoy the music or enjoy cutting a rug (or in this case pavement). When you need a break there will be food vendors, a beer garden, and friends to greet, as well as new folks to meet.
The gathering was inspired by the Hoquiam and Aberdeen communities. We want to celebrate the caring and the support they have shown to each other recently. We hope to have a fun and relaxing day where we can build further support and communication. We want citizens and community leaders to know they are appreciated and their kindness has not gone unnoticed.
For the event we have permission to close Myrtle street between Sumner and Cherry, as well as part of Cherry Street and we have the use of the PUD parking lot. We picked this block of Myrtle as a remembrance of Electric Park. It was a place where communities came together sharing a ballfield and electric production. We will have a display highlighting the facility to remind attendees of the meaning of the location.
