Beach music and shag lessons are a part of the year-long 40th birthday celebration for a South Carolina campground which ranks as one of the nation's largest.
Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach hosts its 11th Annual Beach n' Boogie Weekend beginning Friday and continuing Saturday.
Events include concerts by the Fantastic Shakers and the Embers as well as shag lessons.
The campground opened in 1971 with 30 campsites and a bathhouse. Now Ocean Lakes has 3,447 sites including nearly 900 pull-through sites for larger recreational vehicles.
During the summer season, the campground is the size of a small city, accommodating more than 25,000 guests.
