BELFAST — Belfast Flying Shoes, the nonprofit that produces first Friday community and contra dances, concludes the “Dancing in the Park” series on Sunday, September, 8, at 3 p.m., at City Point Railroad Station, in Belfast.
The event was initially scheduled for Saturday, but postponed due to inclement weather.
Chrissy Fowler and Lisa Newcomb will call dances to lively fiddle tunes played by Alden Robinson and Baron Collins-Hill. These participatory New England social dances are for all ages and experience levels; bring your friends and family.
The Dancing in the Park series celebrates both participatory dance and public parks. This final dance includes add-on activities: Take a shuttle to the trailhead for the Hills to Sea Trail and hike to the dance; check out the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad train cars and station; picnic at the City-owned spot on the banks of the Passy along the Rail Trail; watch for eagles, osprey, and other wildlife.
Dancing in the Park is an outreach program of Belfast Flying Shoes, and is made possible with the support of the City of Belfast Parks & Recreation Department, the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad, the Brooks Preservation Society, the Coastal Mountains Land Trust, the Roxanne Quimby Foundation, the Waldo County Trails Coalition, and WERU-FM Community Radio.
