There are so many things to do this weekend in the Lowcountry. Check out these five events and decide what to do in Charleston this weekend, then get out there and enjoy it!
The 37th Annual Cooper River Bridge Run takes place this Saturday. Every April, about 40,000 runners and walkers participate in the annual 10k race, which runs from the Shem Creek area of Coleman Blvd. in Mt. Pleasant to Marion Square in downtown Charleston. After the race, celebrate your accomplishment at the Finish Festival in Marion Square. If running isn't your forté, cheer on the racers and enjoy the after party!
Lowcountry residents and tourists will celebrate spring at the 42nd Annual Flowertown Festival in Summerville from April 4th-6th. Bring the family out and enjoy fun activities, food, sights, arts and crafts, and more! Admission is free for all.
Jambalaya, andouille sausage, alligator, étoufée, and crawfish will abound at James Island County Park this Sunday during the Lowcountry Cajun Festival. In its 23rd year, the festival features a crawfish eating contest, live music, a crafts market, carnival rides, and games for kids. Admission is $10 for those over 12 years of age. Kids 12 and under get in free.
Every spring, students at the College of Charleston are invited to submit their recent works of art to Young Contemporaries, a juried student exhibition that takes place at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. This year's juror is artist Bill Dunlap, who must choose the students who will exhibit their work from among hundreds of entries. The work will be available for viewing the the Halsey Institute from Friday, April 4 through May 3.
