Celebrate the town that inspired the 1984 movie "Footloose" with a trip to Elmore City's Footloose Festival. This event commemorates the famous 1980 prom that ended the ban on dancing and inspired the community to get up and dance. The Elmore City Community Center will be transformed into the "Stairway to Heaven Cafe," so festival participants can enjoy the menu that was served at the first prom - chicken fried steak. There will also be a pancakes breakfast and Indian taco lunch.

Pull your favorite retro clothes out of your closet and enter the '80s Outfit Contest to compete for a trophy, then make your way over to the arts and crafts vendor booths. The Footloose Festival features dance contests, a 5k run/walk, games and inflatables for kids, a car show, an art contest, lawnmower races and a huge street dance. The popular street dance will begin at 5pm in the community center, so join the original group of kids from Elmore City High School who made history, kick up your heels and dance.
