Barn dance, BBQ support park programs

Looking to kick up your heels to some foot-stomping live music? Then mosey on over to the Friends of Huddart and Wunderlich Parks' Big Bad Barn Dance and BBQ on Sunday, Aug. 26, at Folger Stable in Wunderlich County Park, Woodside.

From 4 to 7 p.m., the fundraiser will feature a fiddling duo, a band, a dance caller and plenty of room to move around the courtyard at the circa-1905 barn, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

A catered meal, beer and wine will be served at outdoor tables.

The event supports nature hikes for kids at Huddart Park, Folger School History Program tours, the Hikes with Friends program, the Folger Stable Museum and speaker series.

Go to to buy tickets. They cost $75 and are available online until Aug. 25 at 4 p.m.

Guests may park at Wunderlich, 4040 Woodside Road, or go to Woodside Elementary School, 3195 Woodside Road, and take a free shuttle to the barn less than two miles away.
