Thousands shag on the sand at the 30th Carolina Beach Music Festival


CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — The 30th annual Carolina Beach Music Festival had folks shagging in the sand Saturday down near the newly re-opened Boardwalk.

Organizers said several thousand people come out each year to soak up the sun and listen to “authentic Carolina Beach music, ” which folks say is a sort of Motown style with a beat suitable for shag dancing.

But it wasn’t just oldies in store for concert goers. The bands were playing everything from the classics to today’s hits.

Organizers said each year more and more people bring their blankets and beach chairs to the Boardwalk to take in the sounds and cut a rug … or should we say sand.
