Country Barn Dance for People with Disabilities at Masker’s Barn in Berkeley Heights, Nov. 3

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Community Renewal are pleased to offer people living with disabilities an afternoon hoe-down on Saturday, November 3, from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. at Masker’s Barn. The party will include music, dancing, refreshments and hayrides in the woods and fields of the Watchung Reservation.

“This is an event you won’t want to miss,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella. “It’s a great way to get outdoors, enjoy the renovated Masker’s Barn, play games, dance and meet some new friends.”

Put on your cowboy boots and hat and get ready for fun as a square dance caller and country musicians get your feet moving as you learn basic square dance steps. Adding to the energy will be a line dance instructor who will teach us some new dance routines.

Take a break from the dancing and hop on the hay wagon to enjoy a beautiful autumn afternoon in the reservation. Then grab a plate and enjoy snacks and refreshments back at the barn, a prominent structure in the Deserted Village of Feltville/Glenside Park.

The deadline to register for the barn dance is Monday, October 29. The fee is $10 per person. To register for the Nov. 3 barn dance and for additional information about this event or other upcoming programs and special activities, please call 908-527-4096 or visit us on the web at www.ucnj.org.

Masker’s Barn and the Deserted Village of Feltville/Glenside Park are located on Cataract Hollow Road, off Glenside Avenue in Berkeley Heights. These facilities are services of the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
