Florence Labor Day Celebra­tion will feature a street dance Sept. 1, from 9 p.m. until midnight on Main Street.

Members of the band are Allen Makovec and son Caleb of Goessel, Bob Griffis from Manhattan, and Duane McCarty from Marion.

Each musician sings to add a variety of voices and styles. Band members have more than 30 years of band experience. Admission requires a $4 button.

The event will be at 3 p.m. Sept. 1 in the grass lots in the 100 block of West 5th in Florence. Registration begins at 2:30 p.m.

Children age 4 and up are invited to compete. There is no entry fee for the participants, but button admission is required for spectators. Awards will be given to the top finishers.
