Dance en­thu­si­asts from across Vic­to­ria and in­ter­state will con­verge on Hor­sham next month for Wim­mera Rock­ers Dance­world’s an­nual three-day event.

Or­gan­iser John Finn said this year’s event, ‘One last kiss’ would fea­ture bands The Fender Ben­ders and Honky­tonk Rock­ers.

“We have a yearly dance event fea­tur­ing dif­fer­ent bands and themes over a few days and it’s al­ways well sup­ported,” he said.

“Peo­ple come to our dances from Mel­bourne, Tas­ma­nia and all over Vic­to­ria.”

Ac­tion at Hor­sham Town Hall gets un­der­way on Fri­day, July 6, with the Fender Ben­ders to per­form from 8pm to mid­night.

On the Satur­day morn­ing, Wim­mera Rock­ers will wow crowds with a demon­stra­tion at Hor­sham Plaza from 11am to noon.

That night, the ac­tion re­turns to the town hall from 7.30pm, with Honky­tonk Rock­ers to take to the stage from 8pm to 12.30am.

This year’s dress-up theme is black and pur­ple with a touch of sil­ver and prizes will be on of­fer for the best dressed.

The fes­tiv­i­ties will con­clude at Haven Hall on the Sun­day, where there will be a free bar­be­cue and danc­ing from 10am to noon. Mr Finn said ticket sales were go­ing well.
