The annual dance extravaganza with DJ spun music is a special opportunity for the entire Cambridge community to celebrate summer.  After dark, colorful lights will be launched, adding to the magic of the evening.

Originally conceived in 1996 as part of the 150th anniversary celebration of Cambridge, the Dance Party returns each year attracting young and old to join in the festivities!  The event is free and open to the public.
