This weekend is full of opportunities to revel in the glories of full-swing summertime.
Start your weekend by heading to the Charleston County Public Library for That Summer Book Sale and grab all your summer reading in one place.
Once you’ve satisfied your literary side, celebrate ‘Merica and Flag Day! Holy City Brewing hosts their second annual Flag Day Burger and Beer Festival. Bring your appetite, pet, and American pride.
Need to center your zen before the weekend? Relax tonight and head over to Namaste Folly. Enjoy free yoga and a potluck meal. Kids are welcome, and the event is BYOM (bring your own mat).
Start your Saturday with some cool art at the American Caravan Vintage Sale. The sale will have sculptures, prints, jewelry, clothes, and much more for you to bring home.
Do your good deed for the day and get your beach fix at the same time by volunteering at the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project, followed by a celebration with wine and surf-inspired fare.
If the graffiti from the Summer SOULstice Celebration just tickled your eye-buds, then The Pretty Girls Art Show will give you a full smorgasbord of art, with live painting, spoken word, dance, and more.
Shaggin’ on the Cooper is back! Bring the family to enjoy a beautiful sunset and dance to live music by Groove Train.
If you hit up The Lumineers on Friday and now feel like being a bit more theatrical, the reading of RED should do.
Want something a little heavier than folky rock? The Oasis fits the bill with The World Is a Beautiful Place, Pity Sex, Dads, In Between, Future Wives, and Naps
playing the night away.
Sunday is Father’s Day, so treat your outdoorsy dad to free admission at the Aquarium to view all his favorite critters. If your dad is more of a car lover, hit up the Cars & Carbs show.
After you’ve eaten your weight in pasta, head over to the Olde Village Community Center for a screening of Love Free or Die. This documentary tells the story of the first openly gay person to become Bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom.
Of course, after that busy of a weekend, this alternative sounds pretty good too: just a day of R&R at the beach. The prediction is sunny skies and in the 80s!
