Update! The Fall Migration is here! Yes, the weather is beautiful at the beach we are ready for old and new friends to meet again in North Myrtle Beach. The fun is the last blast of the season at the SOS Fall Migration which this year will be September 14 – 23rd, 2012.
Known as the biggest adult party on the East Coast, the Fall Migration centers around the famous SOS lounges – Fat Harold’s, Ducks, Pirates Cove, the OD Arcade, & the clubs at the OD Beach & Golf Resort. Also, 2001 has some of your favorite bands. For more information on all events happening, check the SOS website and their facebook page. You can also check Shagtour for your favorite bands to see where they are playing. Each lounge has its own entertainment and personality, so you have to make the rounds through each lounge during your outings. Many member clubs will schedule “tea parties” in the local lounges and the lounges themselves schedule special parties during the migration. Many popular bands come to Main Street playing crowd favorites. Shag dance instructors will be in lounges to offer classes to those whom are seeking to improve their skill or increase their repertoire of moves.
On the first Sunday & only Monday of the Fall Migration everyone meets in the street for two of the biggest street parties you have ever seen, Fun Sunday & Fun Monday. Last year we were amazed at the size of the crowds who come out. On Fun Sunday the party is in the street beside the OD Arcade. On Fun Monday, crowds will pack Main Street from OD to Hillside. There will be great music, dancing in the street, & fun to be had by all. There will also have merchandise vendors, food and drink vendors, & displays set up by the SOS sponsors.
|Did you know that both events are not only fun, they are free! They are funded by sales of Fun Monday raffle tickets! According to the SOS website, the drawing was started as a way to finance the events of Fun Monday. It generates the income that pays for all the activities. There is no charge for people to attend the events of Fun Monday. It only takes you $10.00 to make you eligible to be in the drawing. The first ticket drawn wins $7,500, the second wins $2,000, the third wins $1,000, the fourth wins $500, and the fifth and final ticket wins $ 250. After all the bills are paid there is a donation made to Caring For Kids which is the chosen charity for the Fun Monday Enhancement Committee.|
Fun Sunday bands, Mojo Blues Band and the Craig Woolard Band will be playing from 1pm-5pm on First Avenue beside the OD Arcade.
Fun Monday bands, Jim Quick and Coastline Band, Andy King, Jerry Butler and the Mojo Blues Band will be playing from 12:00 to 5:30 on Main Street by the OD.
So gather 1,000 of your best friends and head to North Myrtle Beach for the biggest adult party in the area. For more information, go to the official SOS website.
