Some 50-year-olds party like it's ... 1960!

That's how things went down Thursday evening as Westport's recreational "crown jewel" -- Longshore Club Park -- was thrown a '60s-theme bash to mark the half-century since being acquired by the town.

The celebration featured a dance party, with attendees groovin' in their finest tie-dyes and bell-bottoms to some of the era's greatest hits from Motown and the leaders of the British Invasion, the Beatles and Rolling Stones.

Proceeds from the event benefited the Longshore 50th Anniversary Committee, which is collecting and preserving the history of Longshore.
