THE DIRTY DANCING FESTIVAL, LAKE LURE
I had just followed Savannah onto the dance floor after watching the Asheville Ballet dance to Be My Baby, Yes and Stay.
I was 12 when Dirty Dancing was released. Yes, That was 30 years ago. And yes, here I was celebrating that movie at an annual festival dedicated to it.
The Lake Lure Inn and Spa where the Dirty Dancing stars stayed
These participants were focused and determined to stay up in the air the longest and win that coveted crown.
We even had a marriage proposal and everyone cheered and were so happy he did not lose the ring to the sucking mud underneath.
It was a scorching hot day at the festival, so to cool us down, we paired the heat with delicious cookie dough ice cream and local ginger cider from Noble Cider
We didn’t arrive on time, but they also have dancing lessons at the festival as well. In this part of America, they call it shagging!
