The former Cuba City Dairy Days street dance is now called the Hometown Street dance and will be held on Saturday, July 21. The Cuba City Chamber of Commerce will again feature a live auction to help defray the ever-rising cost of putting on the "Hometown Festival", held each year in June.
A portion of this years profit will be used to pay the shortfall of income that occurred in paying for the inflatables at this year's festival.
The street dance will be held on Main Street from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. with music by the Brews Brothers.
A main event at the Hometown Street Dance is the Bake-Make and Partake auction and was started to involve residents in the community.
The "Bake" part is for all the good cooks in the community to allow them to donate a favorite pie, cake, batch of cookies or a pan of bars to be auctioned of during the dance.
The "Make" portion is for businesses or individuals in the area that make items such as food products or new craft items.
The "Partake" is for businesses and individuals who wish to donate a new item they sell from their business.
Chamber members urge all in the community to get involved and make this years event a success.
For more information or to make a donation please call one of the following Chamber Members: Tim or Diane Gile at Gile Cheese at 744-3456; Joe Spillane at Doolittle's Pub at 744-2404; Amy Sampson at The Dead End at 744-2708 or Sandy Reuter at Southwest Health Center at 744-2869.
Last year's auction raised over $6,000 with $3,000 being donated to the Community Fair and Picnic to pay for last years fireworks. The remainder of the money raised went to help with the Chambers Electronic Sign Project, which was completed in December 2011 at a cost of over $12,000.
