Midtown becomes Kornfield Kounty tonight as "Square Dance Weekend" begins in Bryant Park.

The free urban hoedown runs from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight and tomorrow and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, with performances by The Calamity Janes, The Remedies and The Backyard Boys.

Dave Harvey of NYC Barn Dance will be calling the do-si-dos and promenades and comic Andy Ross will serve as host for the crowd garbed in Daisy Dukes, bandanas and bolo ties and cavorting around hay bales.

Hester Street food vendors will serve Texas barbecue, chicken and waffles, and fry up doughnuts on site. For more information, go to or call 212-768-4242.
