It's time once again for the Friday Five, where we bring you five fun and interesting things to do around the Lowcountry for the weekend. Check out an artists' market, enjoy Gullah culture, shop tax-free, and more! Read on for details.
Charleston Culinary Tours is hosting a Fresh at the Farm Dinner Series, and this weekend marks the second of the series.

The Music Farm is the place to be this Saturday from 10am to 3pm for the Lowcountry Artist Market. Come see handmade and vintage items like jewelry, clothing, stationery, decor, art, and more. Admission is free, but bring your wallet! You won't be able to turn down some of the amazing wares vendors have on display.
On Saturday from 12pm to 7pm, learn all about Gullah/Geechee culture at the Gullah-Geechee Nation International Music & Movement Festival. The event takes place at the Charleston Maritime Center and features visual art, music performances, and a living Gullah/Geechee marketplace.
Reptiles take over the Omar Shrine Auditorium at Patriots Point during ReptiDay this Saturday from 10am to 5pm. View snakes, lizards, and exotic animals on display and available for purchase. Live seminars and demonstrations will show you that these animals are much more than creepy crawly critters! Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids aged 5-12. Children under 4 get in free.
Don't forget about tax-free weekend in South Carolina! This Friday through Sunday is the perfect time to get your shiny new school supplies, back-to-school wardrobe, and college necessities. For information on what items are exempt from sales tax this weekend, click here. Hint: It's a long list!
