S.O.S. Fall Migration
September 6 - September 26
S.O.S. – Society of Stranders
Where friends meet to enjoy the lifestyle, music and dance!
The end of summer is marked by the days getting shorter & the nights growing longer, a little chill in the night air, & flocks of birds winging their way south for the winter. This all means one thing to shaggers. The Fall Migration is finally here! Buried deep in the instincts of every shagger is the preferred migration destination of soulful dancers with sand in their shoes & rhythm in their hearts, that is Ocean Drive. Every strander feels the need to get to the beach to catch the last golden rays of the summer sun & feel the warmth in the breath of the final summer breeze. They all meet for the last blast of the season at the SOS Fall Migration.
The center of attention for the 10 days of the biggest adult party on the East Coast is the famous SOS lounges. The SOS lounges are Fat Harold's, Ducks, Duck's II, the OD Arcade, the Pirate's Cove & the clubs at the OD Beach & Golf Resort. Each lounge has its own special quality, so you really need to make the rounds through each lounge during your Fall Migration outings. 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.
All though the heart of any SOS event is the nightlife in the lounges at the intersection of Main Street and Ocean Drive, you can't afford to miss the two monster events held right out in the sparkling sun of the crystal coast. You need to mark your calendar & plan to be on hand for both SOS Fun Sunday & Fun Monday!
On the first Sunday & only Monday of the Fall Migration everyone meets in the street for two of the biggest block parties you have ever seen, Fun Sunday & Fun Monday. On Fun Sunday the party is in the street beside the OD Arcade. Some of the best names in beach & 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 are gonna' do it all again. For Fun Monday we will pack Main Street from OD to Hillside with every smooth dancing fun lovin' friend that we can find. There will be great music, dancing in the street, & fun to be had by all. We will also have merchandise vendors, food and drink vendors, & 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.
