Dancin’ In The Streets
Dancin’ in the Streets started a mere 10 years ago, coincidentally on the 75th anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Clarendon Hills. What was once a couple of downtown live concerts has ballooned into eight nights of village-wide downtown block parties, complete with live concerts every Wednesday night.
The idea for the concerts came out of a desire to let residents get better acquainted with local businesses and their neighbors, while enjoying the community at large. Today, every major business in downtown Clarendon Hills opens its doors during the events and people come from all corners of Clarendon HIlls to listen to the music, get their faces painted, or to just have a good time with friends and neighbors. And, much like the village namesake “the Volunteer Community,” each concert is run entirely by volunteers from the village and their sponsors.
The Clarendon Hills Historical Society is proud to participate in a number of the concert evenings with a booth of its own to showcase what the Society has accomplished, handing out balloons for children, and displaying antique cars.
