Woodside's biennial Barn Dance has a new location and lots of new activities for both adults and children this year as it moves to the Mounted Patrol Grounds on Kings Mountain Road, on Saturday Oct. 19, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Event organizers Ellen Mernick and Stacy Stauffer and Woodside's Recreation Committee promise a full moon that night in addition to dancing to live country-rock music by the Santa Cruz Beach Cowboys.
A special feature will be a pumpkin patch with pumpkins for sale.
"This is a fun night out without leaving Woodside," says Ms. Mernick. "This is an adult party -- not just for children," she adds.
Children's activities during the day include pony, mechanical bull and fire truck rides, as well as a petting zoo, clowns and magicians.
Dinner will include barbecued tri tip, hamburgers, hot dogs, beans, corn, salad and drinks.
Tickets at $35 for adults and $15 for children can be purchased at Woodside Town Hall until Oct. 18 (unless they sell out as they have in previous years) during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed noon to 1 p.m. for lunch, Monday through Friday or by mailing a check to: Town of Woodside, P.O. Box 620005, Woodside, CA 94062. For more information call 851-6790.
