Fans of the cult classic movie, 'Dirty Dancing,' are celebrating in Lake Lure this weekend.

This is the first year the festival will be held on the same weekend as annual Lake Lure Olympiad Sports Festival. The 10th annual three-day event includes the Lake Lure Triathlon, and 10k Dam Run.

Festival organizers believe the crowds will spill over. "We draw a few thousand and the Olympiad draws a few thousand," said Jo Bergersdorfer of the 'Dirty Dancing' festival.

Bergersdorfer says she hopes athletes throw on their dancing shoes after the races are done.
