Wow! What a great night of music, dancing and reuniting at the annual Lion’s Head Homecoming Weekend Street Dance hosted by the Bruce Peninsula Family Centre daycare.
The weather was absolutely perfect for the event which saw almost 700 people come out to support our local daycare.
Opening Act Adam Hellyer drew in the crowds as people started lining up to get in, and before long Main Street was hopping!
The band Horseshoes and Hand Grenades from Meaford kept the party going all night long with songs you could dance and sing along to. The feedback from the night has been outstanding, “great music” was heard many times. This was their first time playing the Street Dance. “Lion’s Head, you know how to throw a great party” they said.
The Farm Truck food truck kept everyone fed with delicious homemade fare. We can’t thank them enough for taking on the challenge of feeding so many people.
This event is a huge undertaking for the Family Centre that requires hundreds of volunteer hours in preparation. We absolutely could not make this happen every year without the help from all our volunteer parents and the support from the community.
A huge thank you to White’s Garage for the use their property, Rydall Contracting for providing the “stage”, Ray Reid, Bruce Peninsula Septic Services, Hellyer’s Foodland, TAG Protection Services, David & McLay Insurance, Four Seasons Party Rentals, Dan & Kristal Carey, Bob Hofstrand, MNBP, and our entertainment for the evening Adam Hellyer and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades.
A special mention to Matt & Angie Hayes, and Benton Lancaster, who were there to help with whatever needed to be done from setup to cleanup. The night was a great success because of your help! THANK YOU!
And last, to everyone who came out to support the Family Centre, it takes a village to raise a child but it also takes an outstanding community to make a street dance a success! This is the daycare’s largest fundraiser of the year. The funds go directly back into operating cost to help keep childcare fees affordable for families on the Bruce Peninsula.
Great job everyone! See you next year, same time, same place!
