You've Never Seen the Movie Footloose Like This Before
On Saturday, June 20 from 8:00-11:00 p.m., the Madlot at West 7th and Washington Street in Covington will be energized as we invite our neighbors to dance like it’s 1980.
Alongside our partners, Braxton Brewing Company and Renaissance Covington, and with help from our generous sponsors Center for Great Neighborhoods Covington and CovingTen, we are projecting magic for you this summer.
The totally tubular dance starts at sundown (8:00 p.m.) with a pre-show, including tunes from DC Sonix and an 80s music video dance andtrailer medley. Then, the movie will start rolling and we will keep dancing until 11:00 p.m. with some righteous snacks and suds available for purchase, featuring food from Mediterranean Grille and drinks from Braxton, MadTree Brewing and Wiedemann's.
The best part? It’s FREE and open to everyone. Throughout the event, the space will come alive and encourage connection between people who normally may not interact. Families, groups, and strangers will engage in a shared experience allowing them to express their creativity, be active and have fun. The event will be an example of true art for place-making as we craft a story about our community.
Come dressed in your favorite 80s gear and bring a blanket and chair to enjoy the ultimate 80s multi-sensory throwback experience!
