Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Ocean Lakes Family Campground celebrates “Lost Sock Memorial Day” on Wednesday, May 9. The event takes place at the Myrtle Beach campground, and virtually, online on the campground’s Pinterest account.
The campground’s laundromat, Sandy’s Soapy Suds, is the location of the “Lost Sock Memorial Wall.” The wall features a clothesline and clothes pins for guests to pin their remaining single sock looking for its “solemate.” Socks hang on the top clothesline with letters on their toes spelling out “Lost Sock Memorial Wall,” and underneath it reads “For those left behind.” Promotional posters have be placed throughout the campground with headlines stating “Missing” or “Wanted” with pictures of various socks and descriptions to encourage guests to visit Soapy Suds to pin their sock(s).
All guests at the park are invited to participate, along with others who can join the celebration through Pinterest. Followers can email a photo of their sock(s) to email@example.com and Ocean Lakes will pin it to one of its boards. Be sure to follow Ocean Lakes by searching for OceanLakesFC under the "People" category in the search box to see your sock(s) displayed.
“We have been looking forward to this particular holiday for months,” said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “Guests were giggling as teammates were creating the 'Lost Sock Memorial Wall.' This event is perfect for launching our new Pinterest account. The campground’s new Pinterest account will kick off with pin boards highlighting 'Single Sock Occupations,' 'The Crafty Sock,' 'Laughing Our Socks Off,' and 'It Socks to be Lonely' sock personal ads."
This event is part of Ocean Lakes’ year-long theme called “Leap Into Fun,” which started in February due to leap year. Ocean Lakes teammates and guests have recognized unofficial holidays that have fun themes, providing activities in the park and online to campground guests. Each month, "Leap Into Fun" has encompassed several unique holidays or commemorative days that relate to various aspects of Ocean Lakes’ amenities, activities and culture.
The award-winning campground will include the wacky celebrations on its activities calendars and online through its website, Facebook page, Twitter account and blog.
