"Rock Your Park" Flash Mob!
July is Parks and Recreation Month, and the National Recreation and Parks Association is sponsoring a "Rock Your Park" promotion.
As part of this promotion, the Garner Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department is organizing a flash mob during the Independence Celebration on July 3 at Lake Benson Park.
A flash mob is a group of people that suddenly assembles in a public place, performs for a brief time and then disperses.
The performance will be set to the Miley Cyrus song "Party in the USA" and will utilize red, white and blue umbrellas as props. The dance will occur sometime between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
