Mayor Riley stays on message: Charleston is special and beautiful

After breakfast, I headed over to Marion Square for the opening ceremony, tweeting all the way (have you followed my tweets? I think it’s kinda fun to use twitter, like I have a group of friends I can make snarky asides too.)

Opening ceremonies: Mayor Riley talking about how beautiful Charleston is, official type people giving out awards, and a man and woman sabering open some champagne bottles.

Nice, if a tad dull.
