Rye Town Park will be holding a “Classic Disco Night” event at the South Pavilion Friday, July 22 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.

For those too young to remember it, disco is dance music blending funk, soul, pop, and salsa. It achieved peak popularity during the mid-1970s to the early 1980s. Well-known 1970s disco performers included Donna Summer, the Bee Gees, Boney M, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Trammps, Gloria Gaynor and Chic. Now a new generation can learn how to “Boogie Oogie Oogie” to the flames of a “Disco Inferno.”
The disco party at Rye Town Park will reach a fever pitch as the nearby Playland Amusement Park starts its fireworks at 9:15 p.m.
This event is free, and parking fees will be discounted. Parking for non-residents is $5; Resident Permit Holders pay $4; and, Resident Senior Permits are Free. The event will be held rain or shine – except In case of severe thunderstorms.
