Country Barn Dance for People with Disabilities, Their Families and Friends at Masker’s Barn in Berkeley Heights, Oct. 6

Enjoy the Music of Jeff Lloyd & the Cadillac Cowboys and Learn to Square Dance

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, their families and friends an afternoon hoe-down on Sunday, October 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Masker’s Barn in Berkeley Heights. The party will include music, dancing, refreshments and hayrides in the woods and fields of the Watchung Reservation.

“This is an event you, your family and friends won’t want to miss,” said Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter. “It’s a great way for everybody 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 Jeff Lloyd and the Cadillac Cowboys perform classic country music and a square dance caller teaches you the basic square dance steps. Take a break from dancing and hop on a hay wagon to enjoy a beautiful autumn afternoon hay ride in the Watchung 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, September 30. The fee is $10 per person. To register for the October 6 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.
