SEPTEMBER: Downtown Provo Dance Walk and First Friday

I have some good news.

Did anyone else also notice how lively Downtown Provo has been--even before the students returned last week? 

Something very, very cool is happening in our city.  And I am so proud of it!  Good eateries, great music and wonderful people-- you won't hear any complaints from me. 

To celebrate, we are reviving the DOWNTOWN PROVO DANCE WALK for another First Friday!  

Don't know what it is?  Here's more info about where this was first organized...and below is a video piece about our first Dance Walk in Provo-- I still can't believe how many of you came out for this!  




Also, I can't believe that video ends on the entire crowd singing along to Call Me Maybe.  My heart is swelling with joy and pride (seriously).

Do you love to dance?  Do you love Downtown Provo?  Do you love neither but think you could be convinced to do so?

Then see you on Friday.   I hope you can make it because having a great time is just OH so important.  

Here is a Facebook event to RSVP to, or for you to share.  I would love it if you helped spread the word.  Let's make this a huge ordeal! 



Here's what you gotta do: 

1) Dress to dance.  Workout clothes, costumes, a gunny sack.  You pick!  whatever you want, just come comfy! 
2) Hydrate during the day.  It's gonna be hot Hot HOT!
3) Meet on the North side of the County building on the corner of Center Street and University at 6PM on Friday(across the street from Guru's, basically)
4) Bring your best moves!  Let's take this to the streets!  We will be following a route throughout Downtown Provo, dance walking it all the way!
5) Downtown Provo Inc will be making a video we can send back to Ben Aaron, and they encourage you to "Take lots of pictures and video footage before, during, and after the dance walk and send anything you come up with (professional grade or otherwise) to richelle(at)downtownprovo.org. Also, don't forget to use hashtag #provodancewalk on Instagram and Twitter."

We will provide some bottled water and the jams.  The Dance Walk will wrap-up just in time (close to 7 or before then) to grab some majorly delicious grub before the Rooftop Concert Series!  Which is great, since I am SO looking forward to it.  In fact, I will be live tweeting from @rooftopconcerts the whole night-- that is, if I don't get too caught up enjoying FICTIONIST//THE NEW ELECTRIC SOUND//JENN BLOSIL. 

This is an incredible free, outdoor concert series hosted by C.Jane Kendrick (love you, Courtney! Thank you!) and many other familiar faces in Provo.
