Mixtape # 1
3-5 p.m. Saturday. Space Gallery, 538 Congress St., Portland, $8 per family. On Facebook.
Time to put on your dancing shoes, even if you need help tying the laces. Mixtape #1 is a two-hour family dance party with a playlist by DJ Ponyfarm and all-ages art activities led by students of MECA’s master’s in teaching program. There will also be a set of live tunes from Skulken, a family band with fun jams like “My Annoying Little Brother” and “Spongebob.” Drinks and snacks will be available for the young ones and, oh yes, a full bar for adults.
