The end of summer offers up days getting shorter and the nights growing longer, a little chill in the night air, and flocks of birds winging their way south for the winter. This all means one thing to shaggers. The SOS Fall Migration has arrived in North Myrtle Beach!
Buried deep in the instincts of every shagger is the preferred migration destination of soulful dancers with sand in their shoes and rhythm in their hearts that is Ocean Drive.
The center of attention from Sept. 15-24 is the famous SOS lounges along coastal South Carolina. The SOS lounges are Fat Harold’s, Ducks, Duck’s II, the OD Arcade, the Pirate’s Cove and the clubs at the OD Beach & Golf Resort.
Each lounge has its own special quality, so you really need to go to each one during this Fall Migration. Many member clubs of the ACSC will schedule “tea parties” in the local lounges. The lounges themselves schedule special parties during the migration. Popular bands show up along Main Street playing crowd favorites.
Shag dance instructors will offer classes to the masses who are seeking to improve their skill or increase their repertoire of moves. The heart of SOS events can be found at the intersection of Main Street and Ocean Drive but don’t miss the two monster events held right out in the sparkling sun of the crystal coast.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend both SOS Fun Sunday and Fun Monday! On the first Sunday and only Monday of the Fall Migration everyone meets in the street for two of the biggest block parties you have ever seen, Fun Sunday and Fun Monday. On Fun Sunday the party is in the street beside the OD Arcade.
Some of the best names in beach and shag music will help you rock the day away with a few thousand of your closest friends. Don’t worry if you can’t get enough fun in one day, because on Monday we’ll do it all again. On Fun Monday we will pack Main Street from OD to Hillside. There will be great music, dancing in the street, and fun to be had by all.
There will be merchandise vendors, food and drink vendors, and displays set up by the SOS sponsors. If you are ready for a little adventure, maybe it is time for you to schedule a trip to the wilds of North Myrtle Beach. Maybe it is time for you to join the party at the SOS Fall Migration.
