Central Falls rings in the summer with the first of four Salsa Nights
Central Falls - On Friday, June 30th, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., join Mayor James A. Diossa and the City of Central in the first of four Salsa Nights on the year.
Salsa Night, occurring on the last Friday of the month from June to September, provides family friendly fun as everyone dances the night away on the Roosevelt Ave Bridge. The admission is free and no experience is necessary.
“Salsa Night is one of the most anticipated events of the year,” stated Mayor Diossa. “Come learn how to dance salsa over the Blackstone Valley River.”
From 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Mambo Pa Ti Dance Company begins by offering easy-to-follow lessons. The rest of the night brings about free flowing dance for people of all ages and skill levels after a live band performance from Robertico y Su Alebreke.
“Salsa Night is truly an event that serves so many different people,” stated Parks & Recreation & Community Service Director Rob Sayre-McCord. “Whether you are falling into something completely new that you are looking to try, or a regular, spinning through the dance floor; you are guaranteed to have a fun and safe night.”
A rotating cast of food trucks brought by FoodTrucksIN will provide food for sale. Revival Brewing, Ravenous Brewing beer, and other beverages will also be available for purchase, courtesy of Laughing Gorilla Catering. The City of Central Falls has brought about the second year of Salsa Nights in large thanks to its sponsors: Navigant Credit Union, Blackstone Valley Community Health Center, Storage America, and Uber.
Last year, each individual night averaged over 1,000 people of all ages! People from the City and all parts of the state participated in the festivities. The events have served as a staple to provide a local, safe, and family fun night out.
The next three Salsa Nights will be held on the Roosevelt Avenue bridge on July 28th, August 25th, and September 29th.
