June 2, 2012 was the 27th annual Beach Music Festival hosted by the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce.
The music started at 11:30 and three live bands shared the stage until 5:30
This Beach festival is the longest running in all of North Carolina and has been enjoyed and embraced year after year for the Locals and the returning dedicated Beach partiers in North Carolina that come out for the weekend with their friends for a good old fashioned Beach Party.
With the Craig Woolard Band, the Band of Oz and Jim Quick and the Coastline Band sharing the Stage offering the best Beach Music to Shag to, you were sure to enjoy the best live beach music this side of 40.
You could tell the “Beach Veterans” apart from the “renting the chairs and umbrella” folks, by the huge coolers stocked with ice and cold drinks and snacks, they brought their huge umbrellas and chairs and bags in fishing wagons with balloon tires made for the beach or Wonder Wheelies which are like baby strollers for the sand.
They came early and staked out their perfect spot to see the stage and listen to the beach music.
You can bring your own coolers and that means cold beer of your own, this is very cool because it is only $15 for tickets and since you can bring your own food and beverages, it makes for a very inexpensive way to have a great time with your friends and neighbors.
I would have had taken more pictures, but I had my own cooler of cold ones, and what happens at the Beach Music festival…stays at the Beach Music Festival.
If you want to party with the over 40 crowd, they have been coming to the party for 27 years, and drink a cold beer in the open while standing in the ocean waves, put this on the calendar for next year.
Now, Shagging Contest’s are a whole article to itself and I will detail this out soon, but just let me say..it is fun and a very competitive…way to dance with a partner, in bare feet…..in the sand.
With Love and Shagging (the dance kind)
