Bainbridge Island’s Annual July 3rd Street Dance

This year’s rockin’ Street Dance will be bigger and better than ever!  Two stages will host live music and DJ hits. The Main Stage at the head of Madrone Lane will kick off the evening at 6:00 PM with the National Anthem performed by our Ice Queen, Victoria Robertson. From there, the Queen and the Pirate King take to the streets near Ericksen with a full program of family fun.

There will be a song-and-dance-along; a treasure hunt; a costume parade; balloon sculptures courtesy of The Balloon Brothers; sidewalk chalk and face painting courtesy of Calico Toy Shoppe.  All this will make the evening special for the whole family.  Kids of all ages are invited to wear their favorite costume.
