NASHVILLE, Tenn (WTVF) — People are once again Dancin' in the District! The Riverfront music tradition of the 90's and early 2000's is back for one night only.

Dancing in the district was a free summer concert that ran from 1993 to 2005 on Thursday nights. This was during a time where Broadway didn’t look like the Broadway we know today; so no peddle taverns and no bachelorette parties.

Dancin’ In The District event took place at Nashville’s Riverfront Park like times before it was a free, all-ages, pet-friendly event.

Nashville businessman, Tom Morales says Dancin' in the district is what brought people to lower Broadway. Morales said it will allow new Nashville to get a taste of Old Nashville for night only.

"If you looked around here when we started there was nothing but warehouses, no bars, restaurants, there was nothing, it was a seedy area," said Morales.

Sharon Crossnoe was one of hundreds of people who came out Thursday night. She said she wasn't going to miss it for the world.

"I used to come down here back in the 90s with my sister and we had the best time. When they said they were bringing this back, I was here, I’m here right now," Crossnoe said.

No word yet, if the event will return again in the future.
