And after the parade itself, there is a festival at the location where the parade ends. This festival features “everything dance”—-from classes to multiple stage performances. Some of the parade groups are invited to perform on one of the stages.
The parade route is about 1.4 miles long. May 16, 2020 is the date of the next Dance Parade, which begins around 1 pm. The whole event is over around 7 pm.

And last but not least, DanceInTime is planning to join this parade with a version of the Dirty Dancing routine from the movie! If you are an advanced dancer and would be interested in learning that routine to perform, contact Barb@DanceInTime.com about an audition.
