New Sunday rules!

Because of the weather being so warm, we are going to start the dancing at 2 pm. We may even change it again, to a later time, if needed. Please stay tuned.

We have also put a map, where there is paid parking, and if you go to the left of this map, there is plenty of free street parking. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the boardwalk.

We have also been told that there is a Brooklyn Basin Free shuttle, that brings you from Jack London Square! We will look into that and get a schedule up for you, if you are interested in that mode of transportation.

Lots of people are also, carpooling, Uber/Lyft, biking, roller skating, using electric scooters, Barting from the Lake Merritt BART station, that also offers, $3 all-day parking!

 

On this new flyer, you will also find the name of our Instagram account. We changed it to make it easier to remember.

Pictures and videos of you dancing are posted on there weekly. You can join the Instagram account and post your own pictures, and see yourselves dancing and enjoying this wonderful FREE EVENT!

 

Officially on AUGUST 29th, ROCKY’S MARKET will be CLOSING PERMANENTLY!

You will no longer be able to buy refreshments, or food!
So please, remember to start bringing your own food and refreshments. It is very important to HYDRATE!

And also, please remember to pick up your trash and put it in the receptacles provided, or take it home with you. PLEASE 🙏🙏🙏.

And I want to THANK all of you from the bottom of my heart for always tipping our DJs.
They work really hard for you! Lugging all that equipment in and out their cars, finding parking, setting it up at the boardwalk, and then packing it up, and unloading it, at home, AND PICKING UP UNDER THE BENCHES ALL THE TRASH, that is left, is a lot of hard work!
So please, be generous, and remember to always TIP them.

Thank you, all for your feedback! It is very important to me. This way I can keep improving it with all of your help.
WE ALL DO THIS, BECAUSE WE LOVE MAKING ALL OF YOU HAPPY! 🕺

    I wouldn’t call it salsa, more than half the time it’s bachata or merenge, and the DJ’s seem to know alot more about bachata music than salsa music ……same salsa songs over and over again.
