Transport yourself to the dancing, music and cuisine of India on Saturday, May 6, from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second Street, Davis. The event is family friendly and open to all ages. Last year the Davis Rebekah Lodge organized and hosted the first Bollywood Night for the community, and the attendance was beyond expectations, so the Rebekah Lodge is doing it again on May 6.
Attendees will be treated to an evening of authentic Indian cuisine, prepared by Chef Mary Philip, who is donating and cooking all the food. There will also be a chance raffle with an assortment of prizes including 4 tickets Disneyland tickets, 2 tickets to a SF Giants game, and old time fancy popcorn machine, an assortment of wines, and many more. The highlight of the eventing is entertainment by Bollywood Dreams Entertainment with Prashant’s troupe of Indian dancers. Step-by-step instruction will be offered to attendees leading up to a night of fun Bollywood Dancing.
As noted on the website of Bollywood Dreams Entertainment: “Bollywood music and dancing – it’s not just a dance party. It’s like being in a Bollywood musical. It’s an invitation to be goofy, to smile, make friends on the dance floor, to sing and dance all night long.”
