Downtown Logansport was THE place to be on Saturday October second!  The “Dancing With Our Stars” event presented by Logan’s Landing was a huge success, with a sold-out crowd of over 200 guests who came to see a dozen teams of dancers perform, all to raise money for Logansport’s  Downtown Arts District.

Dance teams were: Mayor Mike Fincher & Karen Rigle; Dan Keister & Gina Curl; Jean Cole & Kyle Kellogg; Annette Russell & Bucky Kramer; Gaby Moore & Erik Kimbler; Judge Leo Burns & Dannan Mordenti; Mercedes Brugh & Jonathan Fisher; Kelly Hawes & Jessica Griffith; Sheila Wildermuth & Kyle Smith; Dick Dilling & Gina Curl, the winners of Best Performance, Judy Lewis & Kyle Kellogg, and the winners of Most Votes, Brian King & Megan Cox.

Our expert judges were Teresa Cain, Kari Thomas of Dance “Elite” of Kokomo, and Chris Neuhauser of RHUM Academy of Kokomo.
