Spring Safari 2009

The Shaggers are here and more are on the way!

The S.O.S. Spring Safari begins today and continues for the next ten days as one of the largest “adult” beach parties on the east coast. With the theme of the Year of Anniversaries, this one celebrates 25 years since the Shag was designated the official State Dance of South Carolina.

Clubs all along Main Street in the Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach will be blasting dance music both live and spun by local DJs. Much of the action will be found at Fat Harold’s Beach Club, Duck’s and Duck’s, Too!, the O.D. Arcade, Pirate’s Cove and the O.D. Beach Resort. Popular bands such as Sea Cruz, the Craig Woolard Band, the Fabulous Kays, Tim Clark Band, and Coastline will be performing at 2001 Nightlife and other venues.

The biggest Spring Safari event is the parade on Main Street, kicking off from the Kroger parking lot at 1PM Saturday the 25th. More than 100 shag clubs with over 14,000 members will be represented.

All through the festival, the O.D. clubs will be playing beach music, having special cookouts and promotional events. There will be dance competitions, workshops and lessons for beginners to intermediates will be available. Ages will run the gamut from pre-teens to the vastly “more experienced”. It's a sure bet that they'll all have loads of fun.
