So Long to Summer Street Dance

September 9, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Bid summer 2023 farewell at the Mountain Gateway Museum & Heritage Center’s “So Long to Summer Street Dance”. Ulysses Long, a 2012 finalist in NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent show, will perform live at the free event, which will feature beach music favorites and past summertime hits. Long is a versatile vocalist and keyboardist who hails from Statesville, NC.

Water Street, which runs behind the museum, will be closed off for the street dance, and local dance teacher Sally Logan will offer free shagging lessons and other types of dance instruction from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. In addition, the Old Fort Ruritan Club will have freshly grilled hamburgers and hotdogs for sale, and Carolina Snowie’s food truck will be available with 30-plus flavors of shaved ice.
