ME 8/15: LAKE LURE CELEBRATES THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF DIRTY DANCING, THE MOVIE
Lake Lure, NC is just one of the many places in Western North Carolina that makes this such a special region of the state and the country.
There you'll find Chimney Rock State Park and the ages old Chimney Rock for which it was named. You'll find a relatively new lake and a classic early 20th Century hotel.
That hotel is also the place showcased in "Dirty Dancing".
On this 25th anniversary of the time that Patrick Swayse uttered those famous words, 'Nobody puts Baby in the Corner', and the first time we all saw that fabulous scene of Johnny and Baby practicing "The Lift" in the water, it's time for the Third Annual Dirty Dancing Festival.
Hear all the details of this very special festival as I speak with Michelle McMcConnell-Yelton, who has been there since this rapidly growing festival began such a short time ago.
