Celebrate 14 great years of Lindy in the Park, the longest-running regular lindy hop dance event in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first Lindy in the Park took place on August 18, 1996 with 13 enthusiastic dancers and a boombox. Over the years, Lindy in the Park has grown to the point where it regularly attracts 100-200 dancers each week and has become a San Francisco swing dancing institution.
