Friday, June 7
7:00 PM Contra Dance featuring Ceilidh Bandicoots*
Tickets: $15
Come dance the night away with the Chicago band Ceilidh Bandicoots!
Featuring callers Jonathan Siviers, Jon Hanson and Scott Meyers.

Contra dancing was popular in the 19th Century and it’s had a big revival this past decade. You don’t need a partner and you don’t need fancy lessons. Any level of dance skill can join in — just listen to the caller and have a ball. A costume is not required but it makes it more fun! NOTE: Event will break to allow dancers to attend the free ArcAttack Demo and will resume afterwards.
Ticket price provides admission to both sessions.

8:45 PM (Free on the BCPA Lawn) ArcAttack Tesla Coil Demonstration
Show sponsored by Red Raccoon Games
Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coil, the crew of ArcAttack use their high tech wizardry to generate a truly ‘electrifying’ performance.

9:30 PM Contra Dance featuring Ceilidh Bandicoots*
