MANSFIELD -- Martha & The Vandellas marked the opening Monday of the “Imagination Park on 3rd Street."
OK, so it was the group's recording of "Dancing in the Streets" that boomed from the speaker minutes after the pop-up, linear park was officially opened along West Third Street, between Mulberry Street and Bowman Avenue.
But you get the idea of the significance of the 1965 hit song -- and the experience organizers hope local residents will have in the park until it closes on Oct. 1.
