Thursday Boogie series returns to Mount Pleasant Pier

If you can’t wait for Shaggin’ on the Cooper on Saturdays, check out a Thursday Night Boogie at the Mount Pleasant Pier.

When it’s summertime in the Lowcountry, you don’t have to wait until the weekend to kick up your heels. The Thursday Night Boogie series is back for the summer at the Mount Pleasant Pier. The dance party organized by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is like a pre-party for the Shaggin’ on the Cooper series that happens at the same venue on most Saturday nights. With beach music and oldies spinning by DJ Jim Bowers right under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, who wouldn’t want to start the weekend a day early? Attendees must be at least 21 years old.

When: 6-10 p.m. Thursday; July 16; Aug. 13

Where: 71 Harry M. Hallman Jr. Blvd., Mount Pleasant
