Francis, who played Angie in the coming-of-age film, helped announce plans for the "Where the Boys Are: Connie Francis' Great American Beach Party" along with Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel said Saturday.
Francis said Friday her first impression of Fort Lauderdale when she arrived to film "Boys" was of a quiet city not yet overwhelmed by students on spring break.
"This place is a morgue," Francis said of her initial thoughts of the Florida city.
Seiler said the "Beach Party" celebration will take place the Memorial Day weekend of May 28 and 29.
The Sun-Sentinel said the weekend event will include hula parties, live music and a beach screening of the film that inspired scores of spring break visitors to Fort Lauderdale.
