Dance. Rhythm. Friendship. Fun.
We're doing the Millersport Sweet Corn Festival again. We dance outside on a concrete slab at the festival's Hickory Grove Bandstand stage, so we'll be bringing our flooring so nobody injures themselves. Our performance time is 6:55-7:30 p.m. You will likely have to park a bit away and walk to the stage, so factor in that time to get there. I'll have parking passes for everyone. We'll be wearing our teal and black outfits. If you don't have one, we'll make sure to have one made for you.
I'll need people to help put the floor together prior to bringing it out, have people bring it out and then snap it together. We won't be breaking the floor down until the end of all the performances since all the teams want to use it.
This year I'll be emceeing the event starting at 5:45 p.m. The Fun Bunch Cloggers are going first and don't want to use the floor, so we'll be setting it right after their performance. I scheduled 10 minutes for that. All the other groups are using the floor. I'm also emceeing Saturday's performances and I'll use the floor there too. We'll be using our equipment for the event as well.
Each person who participates gets free sweet corn...and the corn is some of the best around.
