Beach music lovers take over Yorktown for the Shagging on the Riverwalk summer concert series.

Shagging on the Riverwalk is returning for its 10th season of summertime music at Riverwalk Landing on Thursday.

The beach music concert series is known for featuring some of the area’s top acts playing beach favorites, oldies, Motown and more.

For concertgoers who are not as familiar with the shag style of dancing, Colonial Shag Club will be on site to provide shag lessons, demonstrations and club information.

New to shag dancing or not, guests should bring dancing shoes and hit one of the area’s largest outdoor dance floors.

Performances take place every Thursday night from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. June 11 through 25, and again from July 9 through 30. On Thursday the series kicks off with the Original Rhondels, a premier party and dance band in the Southeast.

Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs, unless they plan to be up and dancing all night long. Admission is free and food and drinks will be available for purchase.
