The Mount Pleasant Pier is introducing a new event in their popular summer dance series. Ages 21 and up are invited to do some shag dancing on the pier at Thursday Night Boogie, a brand-new event series on Thursday nights that will host its second event this summer on July 17.
A counterpart to the Shaggin' on the Cooper series, which is open to all ages on select Saturday nights, Thursday Night Boogie is intended for adults ages 21 and up. Thursday Night Boogie kicked off on June 12, and continues on July 17 and Aug. 14. Each event will begin at 6 p.m.
The Mount Pleasant Pier will be rocking with the sounds of DJ Jim Bowers spinning a variety of unforgettable oldies, beach music classics and line-dancing hits. Best of all, the event is held at the foot of the 1,250-foot-long pier next to Memorial Waterfront Park, the perfect spot to catch cool breezes, beautiful scenery and views of Charleston Harbor and the Ravenel Bridge.
Beverages will be available for purchase on the pier during Thursday Night Boogie, and food will be available for sale in the Mount Pleasant Pier's River Watch Café (not included in ticket price). Gates open at 6 p.m. and music will continue until 10 p.m.
Admission to Thursday Night Boogie is $10. Residents of Charleston County can purchase advance tickets for $8. All attendees must be at least 21 years of age to gain entry, and a photo ID is required. The rain date for all events is the following Friday night. Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.charlestoncountyparks.com (before midnight the Wednesday prior to each event) or by calling 843-795-4386.
This event is brought to you by Southern Eagle Distributing, Bota Box Wines and your Charleston County Parks.
