You know who likes to have fun? Your mom. You have the flowers, you have the card, but what are you going to do with your mother this Mother’s Day? Here are some suggestions (other than brunch, which we’ve got covered too):

On Sat. May 11 head to the Center for Birds of Prey for a morning program that focuses on young birds (and their moms, of course). Be sure to sign up ahead of time, this is a popular event.

Moms get in free to Drayton Hall on Saturday and Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.

The 16th annual Moms’ Run and Walk 5k start at 7 a.m. at the MUSC Health Stadium and proceeds go to Postpartum Support Charleston.

Dance with somebody-your mom!- at Frothy Beard’s Mother’s Day Shaggin’ and Brewin’ with $15 shaggin’ lessons from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.


Edmund’s Oast Exchange is hosting a blind wine testing class on Mother’s Day from 3 to 4 p.m. for $30. Sommelier, Sarah O’Kelley, will walk moms and wine lovers (and wine loving moms) through different wines so they know what goes into a delicious wine.

Moms get free admission to the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry from 12 to 5 p.m.

If mom is hungry for some Greek food, well there’s no better place than the Charleston Greek Festival, where all moms get in for free on Sunday.

Shop for some sweet vintage for your mom, a mommy-to-be, or just a hot mama at the Holy City Vintage Market from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the French Eclectic.

Bring your adventurous mom to Rusty Bull for 20 percent off axe throwing and $5 towards beer for mom.

Speaking of adventures, keep the fun going at Wild Blue Ropes Adventure Park; the purchase of your ticket gets mom one for free.
