Mount Pleasant, S.C. (September 7, 2018) – The Mount Pleasant Recreation Department’s monthly sock hops are set to return for their 24th year Friday, Sept. 21, 2018.
A cherished tradition, the sock hops will take place monthly in the Park West Gym from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and are open to grades 4 and 5.
MPRD staff will chaperone the event, and a DJ will provide the music. Concession offerings vary month to month and typically include pizza by the slice, hot dogs, candy, water, sports drinks and soft drinks. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the kids unwind or drop their children off in a safe environment for a worry-free evening.
“The sock hops offer a safe and fun setting for fourth and fifth-grade students to dance and enjoy an evening with their friends,” says Tina Carter, program coordinator for the Mount Pleasant Recreation Department.
Entry is $6 per person, per night, and must be done in advance. No registrations will be taken at the sock hop. Registration is now open for all seven sock hops and can be completed online at MtPleasantRec.com/Register using activity code 116640, or in person at the R.L. Jones Center, Park West Programming Building, or G.M. Darby Building.
Dates for the sock hops are as follows: Sept. 21, Oct. 19, Nov. 30, Jan. 11, Feb. 8, March 8, April 12.
