'American Graffiti' night at the amphitheater

Morgan Hill’s Community and Cultural Center got a blast from the past at the “American Graffiti" night Friday. The free community event celebrated the magic of the classic rock-n-roll era highlighted in filmmaker George Lucas’ 1973 hit movie. Classic oldies played by a local band called the Hot Rods. Specially priced old-fashioned hot dogs and hamburgers will be available to get the audience into the “Mel’s Drive-In Diner” mode. There will also be a sock-hop dance competition and a contest for adults and children wearing the best costumes from the era of Bobby Soxers and Buddy Holly. “A lot of kids come to the Friday Night Music series with their families, so we want to encourage them to get dressed up in 1950s style, slick back their hair, maybe wear poodle skirts, and let them go play,” Firato said.
