One of our favorite places to take home buyers is Lake Lure, NC. The combination of waterfront mountain real estate, great weather, and strong community makes it an irresistible and magical place to live.
Dirty Dancing Festival
First-time visitors to Lake Lure may feel like they’ve seen it before. Much of the area was used for the 1987 romance “Dirty Dancing.” The film was set in the early 1960s, but even today, parts of Lake Lure feel like the lakeside stomping grounds of the two main characters, which were played by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. It’s a connection the town continues to celebrate with the annual Dirty Dancing Festival.
For 2013, the event is less than a week away. Beginning with a free screening on Friday night, festivities include live bands and dance performances, a beer and wine garden, games for all ages, a dance lessons tent, food and craft vendors, and of course the infamous Lake Lift Competition!
