Sand Hollow Mayhem is a yearly break from the usual evening dance events held by Heart of Dixie. Dance-goers scattered over the beach for up to 12 hours, soaking up the sun, and enjoying live music and authentic Polynesian food.
Entertainment included the band Chasing Chance, Polynesian dancers, and a variety of disc jockeys.
Heart of Dixie event organizers plan to continue building their following with future events themed similar to past foam and paint parties.
“This year we’re going to try and make out events more affordable for the college kids,” Keddington said. “We’re not going to do them every two weeks. We’ll just do one really good one each month.”
