FIRST NIGHT OF “DANCING IN THE STREET”ATTRACTS LARGE CROWD
Oyster Bay, NY—On Friday evening, July 11, under a full moon, the streets in downtown Oyster Bay around the Bandstand were transformed into an inviting dance floor. The Oyster Bay Main Street Association kicked off their fourth season of “Dancing in the Street,” once again sponsored by BMW of Oyster Bay. More than 130 participants, of all ages and all levels of dancing ability, both singles and couples, took to the street as the music filled the summer night air. DJ Louis del Prete, back again by popular demand, played and sang all types of songs, from Latin to rock, from the crooners of the 40s right up to today’s hip-hop artists. His line dance instruction had everyone bounding out of their chairs to get a spot on the floor. It was an evening of fun for all.
OBMSA Promotions Chair Diane Meltzer announced that this free event is one of the organization’s community building/downtown revitalization efforts. They will continue for the next two Fridays, July 18 and 25, from 7-9 p.m.
