WARWICK — Come one, come all, to a colonial costume ball.
Town Hall will turn into a time machine Friday night, as folks show up dressed in clothes from all eras of the town’s 250-year history. The event will start at 7 p.m.
This is the second time Warwick has held a colonial costume ball. The first was last January, in honor of the town’s 250th anniversary.
“We had a lot of fun last year, and a bunch of folks said we should do it again,” said Town Coordinator David Young. “We might make it an annual thing. For now, we’re just going to see how it goes.”
Back this year are the bands Merry Company and Alemande North, with contra dance caller Tim Van Egmond.
Though costumes are encouraged, they’re not required.
“Don’t stay home because you don’t have a costume or the one you wore last year doesn’t fit any more,” Young urged.
All are invited to attend. There is no admission, though donations are appreciated. If you’d like to bring a dessert or hors d’oeuvres to share, they would be appreciated as well.
There will be a cash bar staffed by the Moores Pond Beach Committee, with proceeds going toward water testing at the pond.
