Sway to the sounds of Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and Smokey Robinson with the stunning sunset views of the Charleston Harbor as your backdrop. Charleston County Parks is excited to introduce Motown in the Moonlight, a new summer dance series. On May 4, the Mount Pleasant Pier will come alive with the “sound that changed America” as this series kicks off with music provided by Bobby Alvarez and the Supernaturals.
All Motown in the Moonlight events are held at the foot of the 1250-foot-long pier next to Memorial Waterfront Park, the perfect spot to catch the cool breezes and the views of the harbor and Ravenel Bridge.
