‘Retro Nite’ at bass tournament

If you are from a time when rings were worn on the fingers, when grass was
something you had to cut with a push mower on Saturday mornings, or where the web referred to a spider’s home, then you can’t miss the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship’s “sock hop” this Wednesday (July 20).
Entertainment will be provided by the “Sensational Hot Rods,” a well-known group from Thunder Bay famous for their renditions of great music from the 1950s.
Plenty of fantastic dance music and perfect six-piece “doo wop” harmonies are guaranteed.
Prizes for the best dressed participants, the best greaser ’do and the best dancers (twist, jive, waltz) will be awarded throughout the night. So don’t forget to grease your hair back Fonzie-style or to dig out those old plaid dresses and bobby socks!
Along with nostalgic music, there also will be an opportunity to admire vehicles that have been perfectly restored by the International Early Iron Car Club.
The car show gets underway at 6 p.m. while the dancing begins at 8 p.m.
(age of majority required).
Tickets for the dance cost $10 and can be purchased at the door.
