Evening in White was fun, dance-filled

“Find the rhythm. Find the rhythm.”

“Step this way. Step this way.”

That’s what rang through my head as I danced during the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce’s first ever Evening in White event last weekend.

The event, held as a fundraiser for a new dog park in Atmore, featured different theme-styled tables and food under a white tent canopy just in case of rain. The Tip Tops out of Mobile was the featured musical guest.

When I arrived at the event, I immediately knew that I had made a mistake — I wasn’t wearing anything white.

Of course, I was poked fun of about this, and that was fine.

I began to make my way around the event, taking pictures of couples and groups for our newspaper and magazine.

I marveled at what others were wearing and what was featured on the different tables.

I saw everything from really cool hats and dresses the ladies were wearing and sear-sucker-like jackets men had on their shoulders. Speaking of shoulders, I also saw quite a few suspenders being worn. Are they coming back?

As the night went along, the festive atmosphere didn’t let up at all.

With a great band playing the hits, I thought about one thing — the event was a hit.

Kudos goes to the chamber for their efforts in putting together this event.

Here’s to next year — I’ll wear something white, promise.
