Hundreds dance the night away at Troutman’s Party in the Park
BY DEBBIE PAGE
The steamy evening did not discourage the dancing crowd at the second Party in the Park at Troutman’s ESC Park on Friday evening. Armed with lawn chair and blankets, hundreds picnicked and enjoyed the food trucks as they listened to live music from Brooke Lee and the 7 Days Band. Kids enjoyed the playground, faceprinting and inflatables as their parents browsed the vendors, played corn hole, and rocked in the rockers provided by Troutman Chair.
Parks and Recreation Coordinator Emily Watson thanked title sponsor Piedmont HealthCare and supporting sponsors Puriti Labs, Royal Properties of the Carolinas, Engineered Sintered Components, Sovereign Investment Group, Finley Chiropractic Center, Troutman Chair Company, Statesville Chamber of Commerce, and Troutman Business Council for helping make the event possible.
