Throughout the entire concert series, the dance floor was frequented by couples of all ages from young swing dancers to seasoned country line dancers.

The music is not yet over for this year. A full concert line up, including the Adams Family, is schedule for the Fallasburg Fall Festival for the Arts on September 17 and 18.
