Prattville – A sweltering hot August night did not deter a sizable crowd of fun seekers from gathering at the Creekwalk for a Street Dance to celebrate the last weekend before school starts back on Monday. Families munched on hot dogs, shaved ice, and cotton candy, while listening to the tunes of the Sweet Young’Uns.
Despite the heat, Congressman Bobby Bright was on hand to enjoy the atmosphere, food, and especially the music Friday night.
“I love it. I have my family with me… my wife and my daughter, and we’re just enjoying a family opportunity,” Bright said. “I’ve known the Sweet Young’Uns for a number of years, they are of my generation, and that’s one reason we are here. They are great.”
There was plenty of “dancing in the streets” at the event as couples kicked up their heels to “Old Time Rock ‘N Roll,” “Memphis, Tennessee,” and “Mustang Sally.” JR “Bubba” Culpepper from WBAM 98.9 FM Montgomery, acting as emcee for the evening, introduced Jessica Brookshire, Miss Fountain City 2010, to the crowd.
Brookshire, who attained the pageant crown Sunday night, noted some of her duties and aspirations.
“Along with making appearances and general community service for the City of Prattville, I will be honored to compete for the title of Miss Alabama,” stated Brookshire.
“I also have a personal platform that is called K. A. R. M. A. – Kids Against Ridicule, Meanness, and Aggression. It’s an anti-bullying campaign that I’m going to try to launch here in Prattville City schools.”
