Hendersonville Street Dances

Billie and I went to the county seat (Hendersonville) for ice cream yesterday evening.  We enjoyed a leisurely stroll the entire length of Old Town Main Street which was alive with people enjoying the music from the downtown stage and the classic cars parked in two or three blocks of the barricaded street.  This happens on summer Friday nights in H’ville, and the ice cream is always there.  What’s not to like?

Live street music and dancing are a hundred-year tradition at the Hendersonville Visitor Center.

The H’ville Street Dances began in 1918 when the town welcomed home its soldiers from WW I by dancing in the streets.

Classic cars are parked in two or three blocks of Main Street near the stage at the Visitor Center.
