For 10 days from April 20-29, 2018, the biggest adult party on the East Coast crashes into North Myrtle Beach with a wide variety of activities including tea parties, shag dancing, live music, mingling with friends and a huge parade.

On the last Saturday of the even is the parade featuring ACSC member clubs who plan, design, & build parade floats for fun & a chance to win one of the coveted awards.
