Head on down to Bicentennial Park on Friday, Aug. 31 to catch a BalletMet dance performance on the Scioto Mile! As a part of the Rhythm on the River series, BalletMet is presenting a performance in conjunction with the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. The program will feature excerpts of "Swan Lake," "Sleeping Beauty" and other well-known favorites.

While the free show begins at 8 p.m. (and goes until about 9:15 p.m.), you won't want to miss the kid's activities that will take place before the performance. The little ones can enjoy a movement activity, storytime and songs. Pre-show activities begin at 7:15 p.m.

For more information, visit balletmet.org or www.sciotomile.com. Bicentennial Park is located at 233 Civic Center Drive.
