HURRICANE – Over 1,700 people gathered at Sand Hollow Reservoir, Saturday, for the Heart of Dixie’s Sand Hollow Mayhem. The event combined music, skim boarding, boating, paddle boarding, and many other summer events for the college-age crowd.

“The event went really well,” said Jared Keddington, event organizer,. “A lot better than we expected. I think everybody had a really good time.”

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.”

    Neat! That looks really fun, I would have loved something like that when I was in college. And I love that it was a “clean” event.
