The road might be closed but we are not! The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Stillwater, Leo’s Grill and Malt Shop, MadCapper, Stillwater Proper and Alchemy Sound & Vision, have come together to host a historic DANCE HERE event from noon to 10 p.m. on August 5 on Main Street in Downtown Stillwater.
Please join us for music and activities all day. Bring the whole family and eat, drink, shop and dance local. We will have a few bands, including a big band and a DJ, during the 10 hour timeframe. Dress up with fun hats and memorable outfits to make your mark in history. There will be a contest for both best hat and outfit. We will also be recreating this picture taken in 1901; photos will be taken at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Come out and be a part of history, all while supporting your local small businesses. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to dance on Main Street, an official state highway.
“Stillwater has one of the strongest Chambers in the state,” says Mayor Ted Kozlowski, “they are all about collaboration, strengthening the business community and focuses on the economic impact,” he continues. Proof positive that together in collaboration, we can make the best of any situation. “This community has some amazing and creative people,” states Robin Anthony, President of the Chamber, “we are proud to work with these community leaders to bring this one-day event to our downtown Main Street,” she continues.
