Connect 4’

Emma and Nicholas Pattison (above) played a few rounds of an enlarged “Connect Four” game during the “Open Streets” festival held Thursday afternoon on Front Street in Emo. Meanwhile, below, those on hand took part in the “Chicken Dance.” Earlier, participants performed the “Cha Cha Slide,” a ’90s-era hip-hop song played at gatherings such as weddings, roller rinks, and parties for the lyrics that describe the next dance move. Organized by the Emo “Best Start” hub, the Township of Emo, and the Emo rec program, kids and adults of all ages were invited to the closed-off Front Street to enjoy street sales, games, and dancing.
