Bring your chairs and blankets!

Thank you to our sponsors!

Get in the spirit for the Remembering the 70s event by dressing in your favorite 1970s outfits from disco to plaid pants to hot pants to platform shoes!

Start playing your Donna Summers records because we are reliving the disco decade. In the 1970’s, we said “Hello” to Charlie, Rock progressed into a new generation, and we went with Willy Wonka on a trip we’ll never forget. With advancements in technology, we saw more and more tech in our houses, like the electric clock and eventually the computer.

Growing up in the 1970s meant you remember grabbing your favorite theater candy, like a bag of Jelly Bellies, and seeing the very first Star Wars in a theater or drive in. You always hoped you had the funniest joke on your wrapper of Laffy Taffy. Or that one day you could dance like John Travolta. Every year you asked for a waterbed, but your parents were worried you’d break it.

One time, you swore you made a double bubble while chewing Bubble Yum. You were extra good in December in hopes that Santa brought you an Atari 400. But your favorite memory might be, how good you looked in your orange, knitted flare pants. Your wardrobe might have stayed with the decade but thankfully Blow Pops are here to stay.

What was your favorite 1970s candy? Enjoy samples of some of these candies at Har-Ber Village on June 16!

Scott Eastman and Max Barnett have played off and on since the 1990s—together in a band, as a duo, and as a trio with his wife Debra (pictured). Debra’s father is Max Brown, a well-known longtime Joplin performer, and her daughter, Sara Dunn, is a country recording performer. Scott's most recent notable venture  is playing for country singer Doug Stone for several years.
