Los Gatos Park Dance
Need something to do on Labor Day weekend? The Los Gatos Park Dance is back during the holiday weekend – the 7th annual at Oak Meadow Park. The first year over 2000 people attended and it’s been growing ever since!
Los Gatos Park Dance Details
Cost: FREE – courtesy of Music in the Park
Date & Time: Saturday, August 31, 7 PM – 9:30 PM
Location: Lyndon Bandstand, Oak Meadow Park, Los Gatos
The band this year will again be The Houserockers (a Los Gatos band).
What else: to get a good spot, arrive early! Bring a picnic supper. Beer and wine are allowed with meals (no other alcohol). Bring layers, as it cools down once the sun sets. Prepare to dance on the lawn, so wear comfortable shoes and watch out for gopher holes as you leave – they can be hard to spot in the dark.
Parking at Oak Meadow Park is free to town residents, but if you’re a local, you know that it fills up fast. You can park on nearby public streets if that happens, or try Vasona’s parking, which will cost a little.
This event is sponsored by Los Gatos Music in the Park. In the past, it was also co-sponsored by the Los Gatos Educational Foundation (LGEF) but I am not seeing their name attached this year. Nor am I seeing the Johnny Neri Band as a warm up band for the Houserockers this year.
Jim, my better half, and I drove past the sign at Oak Meadow Park for this recently and I was amazed that I could not find any information on it in a current website, other than on some Facebook pages:
Not sure why the online info is so scant now – it is a great event. If I can learn more about it, I’ll update this post in the future.
