It’s time once again to throw on your party hat and enjoy the annual Zionsville Street Dance. This year’s event – sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce – is expected to one of the biggest yet.
“This year, people can expect the biggest and most exciting Street Dance ever,” said Dusky Loebel, Associate Director of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce. “We’re bringing in the very popular Polkaboy. They always draw large, enthusiastic crowds, so we are very excited for them to come to Zionsville.”
The party kicks off at 6 p.m. Aug. 2 and goes until 11 p.m. The entrances to the Street Dance will be at Pine and Main Streets and at East Cedar and Main Streets.
“Street Dance is a wonderful family-friendly event, offering entertainment for all ages right in Downtown Zionsville,” Loebel said. “We expect that this year’s Street Dance will be the biggest party Zionsville has ever seen.”
The event will have a photo booth again this year, as well has a video game truck and a fire truck from the Zionsville Fire Department for the kids. The children’s area – at Main and Pine Streets – will have three bounce house, face painting and kids’ concessions.
Food trucks will be on hand, as well as offerings from local restaurants. Two separate bar areas – on East Cedar and East Oak Streets – will offer beer and wine. More than a dozen craft beers will be featured this year.
Tickets are $10 for adults in advance, $12 at the door; kids’ tickets are $5 for ages 5-12. Kids under 5 get in free. Tickets are on sale at Ameriana Bank, Akard True Value Hardware, Cobblestone Grill, the Chamber and on line at Eventbrite.
