GEARHART – Dancers, booming music and a delicate network of lights filled the otherwise sleepy streets of Gearhart Friday night at the town’s first street dance. A block of Pacific Way was closed to accommodate about 100 visitors and residents for the Gearhart Downtown Street Dance to celebrate the town’s centennial.
The dance was put on by the Gearhart Centennial Committee to bring people together, committee member and longtime resident Melissa Eddy said.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Eddy said. “What better time than for the centennial?”
