The annual event includes a wide variety of activities including tea parties, shag dancing, dance lessons, live music, and mingling with friends. As the sun goes down, all the local lounges light up with activity and spots like Duck’s, Fat Harold’s, Pirate’s Cove and the OD Lounge become the center of nightlife and fun.
