Tallassee street dance goes on this weekend

TALLASSEE, AL - The 15th Annual "Sweet Summer Night" Street Dance in downtown Tallassee will get underway today.

In spite of our bad luck in Tallassee over the past year, a weekend full of activities are taking place in connection with the AL DEPT. of Tourism's Small Towns and Downtowns campaign.

Gates open at 4:30 PM and tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate. This year's bands include "The Sweet Young'uns", "Ray Goss & 'Friends", "Muse", and the "Fabulous Shades."

All proceeds from the street dance go to the Talisi Historical Preservation Society for Historic Restoration. For a complete list of this weekend's events, visit www.tallasseechamber.
