Lanesboro Barn Dance coming up


Fri, Aug 8th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

The Lanesboro Barn Dance will present another chance to kick up your heels on Saturday August 16 at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro, Minn. Starting time is 8 p.m. and admission is $7 at the door. Located on Parkway Ave. next to Sylvan Park, the Sons of Norway has one of the best dance floors in the area.

No experience is necessary, no dress code, and you need not come with a partner. Just ask someone to dance! All organized dances are taught. This is like the old-fashioned barn dances that were once the mainstay of entertainment in this part of the country. Just come prepared to have a good time. Pop Wagner, noted performer and square dance caller from St. Paul, will be teaching and calling square dances and big circles.

Guest fiddler John Plomondon from Minneapolis will join organizer Bob Bovee who will be playing guitar and harmonica to crank out dance tunes from the South and Midwest.

This event is presented in cooperation with the southeastern Minnesota Arts Council through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature.
