Share with others:
Fifty years ago, Saturday nights at the Stockdale fire hall in Washington County were pretty special.
Viewers using Macintosh computers are encouraged to download this video in Quicktime format. It is available in one broadband size, large.
And so it was this past Saturday night when hundreds of people gathered to relive those magical dance hops.
For $10 apiece, those in attendance boogied to disc jockeys playing music by the Five Satins, the Chiffons, the Shirelles, the Del Vikings and the Marcels, among many others.
The dance marked the 50th anniversary of the dances, which began on Dec. 21, 1957.
The event lost its appeal in the late 1960s but was revived in the mid-1980s on a sporadic basis.
