2nd annual Fabulous 50s Festival scheduled for March

Horry County, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Arts and Cultural Council are proud to present the 2nd annual Fabulous 50s Festival.

The festivities will take place on March 19-27, with events throughout the Grand Strand.

This event began as an effort to raise funds for the Horry County Arts and Cultural Council.  Chris Beattie, Regional General Manager of Legends in Concert proposed the creation of the Fabulous 50s Festival to coincide with the Ultimate Elvis Competition held at Legends in Concert in Surfside.

"I want locals and visitors alike to join me for a trip down memory lane at the Sock Hop in support of the arts in Horry County. Everyone's going to be there—Elvis, Buddy Holly, the Crew Cuts and others. You'll feel like you're on American Bandstand," stated Diane DeVaughn Stokes, Fabulous 50s Sock Hop chairperson.

Some highlights of the exciting event include: Elvis tribute sponsored by Legends in Concert, a junior sock hop, performance art by Terry Brennan, and of course, a Fabulous 50s sock hop and a Fabulous 50s family fling.
