Dancers and toe tappers of all ages are invited to join the fun at Howell Living History Farm on Friday, July 7, when the Jugtown Mountain String Band teams up with caller Sue Dupre during the farm’s annual summer barn dance. The event will be held inside the Charles Fish barn, a circa 1850 timber frame building attached to the farm’s Visitor Center. The air-conditioned barn is fully accessible, and its wooden floor, open bays and acoustics make it ideal for dances. Beginners are welcome at the dance and visitors are encouraged to try their hands, and sometimes feet, at an earlier way of life. During the evening, a variety of easy and more challenging dances will be called. Dances involve a combination of square, circle and contra-dances typical of the times. Gates open for the event at 7 p.m.; the dance begins at 7:30. A $5 donation is welcome.
