'Dancing in the Park' moves Starkville

Austin Montgomery

For the seventh consecutive year, 'Dancing in the Park' drew large crowds to Starkville's McKee Park for the celebration of National Dance Day.

The event was started by KMG Creations Executive Director Kayla Gilmore to commemorate the deaths of her sister and niece. The event quickly grew after National Dance Day was created by 'So You Think You Can Dance' executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.

"The holiday was coincidentally on the same day as our memorial event and it went from there," Gilmore said.
