Tennis Court Dance: 7 PM- 11 PM- It’s back y’all. Well, at least for this year. We wanted a throwback with Elgin’s Sesquicentennial year (we’re 150 years old y’all) and what better way than the tennis court dance. Last Note Productions will get the music started at 7 PM, and the show will start at 8 PM. Get your boots ready for some dancing, as we will be featuring rising country music artist Braxton Keith. There will be a $5 charge to get into the tennis court for dancing, but as always it is free to hang out in the park and listen. Grab your friends, your classmates, or your family and let’s kick it old school style.
