There’s a reason why The Hit Machine is coming back. They play popular songs that get everybody on the dance floor (and yes, there is a floating dance floor at this party). Their playlist at a recent wedding I attended where they provided the entertainment included Shut Up and Dance With Me, Uptown Funk and Can’t Stop the Feeling. Their energy is infectious—it’s impossible to listen to them and not move.
This year there will be three rows of 100’dock on each side of the main dock to accommodate the ever-growing lineup of boaters who want to join in the fun. There will not be any rope tie-offs this year.
Here’s what else you need to know to get the most out of Lake Oswego’s Hot August Night:
- Buoy lines open at 5:30 p.m. at the entrance to Half Moon Bay at the east end of the main lake.
- Finger docks hook up to a central dock, allowing people to exit their boats, visit other boaters and hit the dance floor.
- Boaters are advised to bring an anchor and at least 20 feet of line to secure your boat if you’re not able to tie off on the buoy lines.
- Music starts at 6:30 p.m. on the stage at Pat and Pam Kearney’s home. A DJ will entertain you until then.
- BYOS (Bring Your Own Stuff). It can be a long night, so be sure you don’t leave home without being well stocked with food and drink to enjoy and share.
- BYOT (Bring your own transportation) There will be restrooms with extra dock sections enabling people to walk to them, but a paddle board, canoe or kayak will be necessary if you’re not tied to one of the buoy lines.
- Have a designated driver to ensure the safety of your guests as well as others.
