The Historic Jonesborough Dance Society will hold a special Halloween Costume Contra Dance on Saturday, Oct 29, 2016 at Serenity Knoll Farm, 542 Bacon Branch Road, Jonesborough, 37659. Costumes are recommended especially for the contest and prize awards but not required. The dance will take place in the open-air pavilion with temperatures forcasted in the low 50's (Perfect!). The caller is Beth Molaro from Asheville. The beginners lesson will be 30 minutes earlier at 6:30pm. The dance will run from 7:00-10:00pm.

You are also invited to go across the river to Fender's Farm Corn Maze and Haunted Village after the dance at your own expense. Admission to the dance is $7, $5 for HJDS Members, students and children.

The featured band is SEAGLASS which is Andrew VanNorstrand (from Great Bear Trio), Rachel Bell and Eileen Nicholson. They bring classic contra dance tunes and French Balfolk music and more weaving in roots-rock grooves and captivating improvisations, swing tunes and cowboy songs. This will be a most entertaining dance not to mention the craziness that comes with Halloween costuming.
