The Agriculture Hall at the Shawville Fairgrounds was packed on Friday night for the Country Rockin' Shawville Fair Dance.
Stacy Howard, president of the Pontaic Agricultural Society (which runs the Shawville Fair) explained that the group has been planning the event since March.
“We've had dances in the past, so we thought we'd give it a try,” she said, adding that the event was less of a fundraiser and more of a way to give back to the community. “It's only $5, so everyone has a chance to come.”
