2011 Senior Day Invitation

Juniata County Hillbilly Adult Square Dancers

September 5, 2011 – George Settlemyer Livestock Barn

Have you ever wanted to dance to Down Yonder or Harry Erhard but weren’t sure how to do it?  Come to the livestock barn Labor Day evening and learn how to square dance with the adult square dancers from Juniata County.  These dancers have performed at the Farm Show for 6 years—earning blue ribbons each year.  They can teach you how to square dance to local bands and you may even want to join them at the Farm Show in January or go to a local square dance.

Bring your energy and your dancing shoes to do some square dancing in the barn!  See you there at 7 P.M

Coming to the 157th Juniata County Fair ~ Middle Creek Square Dancing Tractors – September 3, 2011 With Two Shows, at 1 PM & 3 PM

Formed in 2005 as a unique and separate entertainment and educational team within the Middlecreek Valley Antique Association, the Middle Creek Tractor Swingers perform a variety of traditional square dance routines using eight antique tractors as the dancers.

All tractors meet AARP age qualifications-being 50 or more years old! Tractor operators are appropriately (debatable) dressed for their roles as men or women partners. The smaller tractors sport flower bouquets and traditional ladies names to match their roles as women dance partners. The larger tractors have mens’ names and drivers with typical farmer style outfits. Watch for the odd couple “Ollie” and “Alice” and the perfidious “Lady in Pink” who’s always looking for new partners.

The usual performance with 4-5 square dance routines takes about ½ hour although future shows may be extended as new dance routines are developed and added.

Performances are designed to be highly entertaining while showcasing the nimble maneuvering characteristics of the now largely extinct tricycle configured farm tractors.

The team performs at weekend fairs, and antique farm equipment meets in the Central Susquehanna River Valley from April through October.
