17th Annual Dancing in the Streets to be a “Rockin’ Night of Fun”

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Lafayette–West Lafayette Development Corporation announced details of the 17th Annual Dancing in the Streets festival today during a press conference on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge. This year’s Dancing in the Streets presented by IBEW Local 668, will be on Saturday, July 19, 2008 from 4:00p–Midnight on the streets of Downtown Lafayette–West Lafayette.

This year’s theme is “Rockin’ Night of Fun” and features a full schedule of entertainment and activities. As part of the festivities, Lafayette’s Main Street will transform into a hot rod paradise when hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles cruise the streets of Downtown. Also back this year by popular demand is the Laser Light Show, sponsored by IBEW Local 668, in West Lafayette’s Tapawingo Park.

Advanced tickets are $5.00 and available at Guaranteed Transmission, IBEW Local 668, First Financial Bank locations, and the Lafayette–West Lafayette Development Corporation office at the Depot. Admission at the gate for adults is $8.00, children ages 5-12 are $1.00 and children under age 5 are free.

Entertainment: Two stages of entertainment will keep Downtown streets rockin’. Jayne Bond and the Pink Martinis will keep the energy elevated with their high-power act immediately after the classic car and motorcycle cruise. Other acts include Roy E. Reynolds’ “Tribute to Elvis” performing one show only from 6-7 pm, The Groove Catz, the Snake Charmers, American Cheese, Soulshine Band and The Late Show. Additional entertainment will be on the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge.

Food: Food will be provided by 12 local restaurants in Tapawingo Park and at Riehle Plaza including long time vendors Sgt. Preston’s and Arni’s Pizza and a new vendor this year, Scagnoli’s. Food and beverages will also be served by in-house vendors including Chumley’s, Skylight Coffeehouse, Java Roaster, the Black Sparrow, Red Seven, and The Vault.

Car and Motorcycle Show and Cruise: A classic car show, sponsored by Chase Bank has anchored the festival for years but has now been expanded to include motorcycles and show bikes. The classic car and motorcycle cruise will begin at 7 p.m. and includes a two mile oval on Main and Ferry Streets between 2nd and 10th Streets. This year $1,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to classic cars and motorcycles. Guaranteed Transmission and the Development Corporation are this year’s prize sponsors. All car exhibitors will receive gifts and coupons from our sponsors, vendors and local businesses. Awards will be given in several categories including the Mayors’ Awards. Car registration is available at the McDonald’s Open Cruise on July 18th at the McDonald’s on 510 Sagamore Pkwy N and the Fifth Third Bank branch on 2nd Street, in Downtown Lafayette, from 12 noon – 6:45 p.m. on July 19.

Laser Light Show: A laser light show will light up Tapawingo Park just after dark during the event. Sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 668.

Advanced Ticket Sales: Advanced tickets are $5 and are available at IBEW Local 668, AAMCO Transmission, Guaranteed Transmission Service, First Financial Bank locations, and at the Lafayette–West Lafayette Development Corporation.
