On Saturday, September 29, the historic, recently restored Royal Oak Room will open its doors to the public for the 2nd annual “Dancing in the Harvest Moonlight” party. The event will feature live music from one of L/A’s original Pal Hop bands, the Moon Dawgs, while a cash bar will serve seasonally themed cocktails. At last year’s event, the tone for the evening was set by gleaming, classic 1950s-era automobiles that greeted guests outside the ballroom.
Tickets for the event are $25 per person; a limited number of tables for 10 are available. To purchase tickets, call 333-3242. Last year’s event sold out quickly, so early ticket purchase is recommended. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to John F. Murphy Homes, which provides services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Named for its elegant ambience and historical details, the Royal Oak Room is part of the newly restored Ironhorse Court property located at 1 Bates Street in Lewiston. Once the waiting room for the former train station, the facility now serves as an elegant ballroom with many of its original architectural features intact, including a 20-foot-high tray ceiling, dramatic arched windows and rich oak wall panels.
The facility is available to be rented for special occasions such as weddings, family functions and corporate gatherings.
