[MOUNT PLEASANT] – The Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission invites people of the Lowcountry to put on their dancing shoes and get ready for a weekend of shagging on the pier! The final Friday Night Boogie of the summer will be July 15 at the Mount Pleasant Pier (ages 21 and up only). And the popular Shaggin’ on the Cooper series continues Saturday, July 16 with live music by Recollections.
A Friday-night counterpart to the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series, Friday Night Boogie is intended for adults ages 21 and up. The July 15 event begins at 7 p.m., and will feature DJ Jim Bowers spinning a variety of unforgettable oldies, beach music classics, and line dancing hits.
Celebrate the arrival of warmer weather with some dancing at Shaggin’ on the Cooper! Bands from Charleston and throughout the state will perform at the end of the Mount Pleasant Pier on select Saturdays, and the dance floor is open for all ages. The next event is July 16. Bring a date or meet friends, let loose, breathe in the fresh air and dance the night away. Gates for Shaggin’ on the Cooper open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8 p.m.
All Shaggin’ on the Cooper and Friday Night Boogie events are held at the foot of the 1250-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 are available for purchase on site, and food is available for sale at the Mount Pleasant Pier’s River Watch Café. Food and beverages are not included in ticket prices.
Tickets for each event are $10 per person ($8 in advance for Charleston County residents). Space is limited, so advance purchase is recommended. To purchase advance tickets or for more information on these events, call 843-795-4386 or visit the link below.
