Nevada’s first adult-only Sadie Hawkins Country Dance hosted by Main Street Nevada, IA will kickoff this Saturday night at Gatherings. The country dance begins at 6:30 p.m. where tickets can be purchased ahead of time for $5 dollars or at the door for $7 dollars.

“This is the first time we’ve done a town dance that we’ve planned,” Main Street Nevada, IA president Henry Corbin said. “We just realized we have a lot of country fans around here that never get to go to a normal country dance.”

“There’s been a lot of interest in it.”

The idea was developed following a discussion from Main Street Nevada committee members, according to Corbin, when a committee member mentioned organizing a dance similar to the Lake Robbins Ballroom in Dallas County.

“It’s a little bit of a fundraiser, but that wasn’t out main objective with it,” Corbin said.

Funds from the event are anticipated to go towards the organization’s promotions committee’s funds, according to Corbin.

Attendees can anticipate music from U Can’t Beetus Entertainment, and for those who aren’t looking to dance, there will be tables set up for attendees to enjoy snacks and drinks, Corbin said.

“We’re just trying to have a good turn out,” Corbin said. “We want people to come out and have an enjoyable evening; we’re excited about it because we want to give the community something fun right in the middle of the winter.”

“We hope to have a good turnout and we’re pretty excited about it, we’ve had fun putting it together.”
