Lindy in the Park, the longest-running regular Lindy hop swing dance event in the San Francisco Bay Area, is turning 15!  On Sunday, August 14, 2011 come celebrate 15 years of free swing dancing in Golden Gate Park with a special Anniversary edition of Lindy in the Park.  To celebrate, we’re having a potluck picnic and extending the music and dancing hours until at least 3:00pm.  Come out and party, dance, see your friends, reunite with old friends, make new friends, share some delicious food, and have a great time!

To mark this special occasion, we’ll be selling limited-edition Lindy in the Park 15th Anniversary t-shirts and sweatshirts.  Here’s a sample of the design:
