MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Over a dozen mascots were in town for the ACC Women's Basketball Tournament held at Coastal Carolina University. The mascots made a special appearance at Carolina Forest Elementary School Thursday.

Thousands of kids, along with staff, participated in Fine Arts Day at the school. When the mascots came outside to visit everyone, the kids went crazy. They were jumping up and down with joy, giving high fives and lots of hugs.

School principal Simon Keays said "everybody in the school was saying this was the most exciting thing that's happened at the school, seeing the ACC mascots." Keays also stated, "anytime you can see your almost 1,100 students get that over joyed with one thing, it just really helps you understand what our teachers do here everyday, trying to get them excited about learning, and being overly excited about what goes on in the classroom."

The mascots participated in Zumba with the kids, swinging on the playground and riding down slides. 

It was an event that brought the entire school together and one they will never forget.
