It’s time again for the Friday Five, our weekly roundup of events happening around the Lowcountry throughout the weekend. Get out and have some fun! Take your four-legged friend out for brunch, see an outdoor movie, go see some basketball mixed with comedy, and more. Whatever you choose to do, the staff and agents at Johnson & Wilson Real Estate Company wish you a safe and happy weekend!
Head out to MUSC Health Stadium on Friday evening for Films on the Field. Bring the kids out for an Easter egg hunt and more fun activities, then spread out your blankets and chairs on the field for a viewing of Hop at 7pm. Who knows? Maybe the Easter Bunny himself will even show up!
If you’ve never experienced the fun and excitement of rooting for the Harlem Globetrotters, now’s your chance! Catch the exhibition basketball team at either 2pm or 7pm on Saturday, and delight in cheering on extremely talented basketball players who combine athletics with theater and comedy in a way that’s fun for all ages.
Sunday Funday has gone to the dogs! Bring your favorite pooch to Bay Street Biergarten on Sunday from 11am until 2pm for Puppies and Pints Brunch. Sip a mimosa and enjoy a delicious brunch while Fido plays with other four-legged friends. There will also be treats available for the pups!
Speaking of pets, they’re really going to love you for taking them to Palmetto Islands County Park on Sunday for Pet Fest. Pets of all shapes and sizes and the owners are invited to join in the fun from 11am until 5pm. There will be plenty of exhibits, demonstrations, experts, entertainment, and more. Try out the dog-washing station, enter your dog in a cover model contest, enjoy live music and children’s activities like jump castles, meet local rescue groups, and maybe even adopt a new friend.
