October 25, 2015. Sponsored by Lindy Hop St. Louis, we threw a second old fashioned Barn Dance just over the river at Willoughby Heritage Farms in Collinsville, IL. I was the main organizer and coordinator, along with help from volunteers and artists.

This year featured Horseradish and Saddlepals (a band created specifically for the night with some of St Louis' finest musicians), complimentary dance lesson, DJ breaks spun on vinyl 45s, a professional photobooth, vintage market, baking contest and best-dressed contest with fabulous prizes, old-fashioned candy stand, and bar. We danced the night away under the harvest moon.
