Freak thunderstorms and flash flooding be damned — we’re gonna have a good weekend y’all. From dancing to drinking to charitable events, there’s plenty to do and lots to see, so grab your galoshes, if need be, and hit the town:

Stop by the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina at 5:30 p.m. for the weekly Party at the Point. Come out and enjoy tonight’s live music from Guilt Ridden Troubadour and Sideshow Americans.

It’s the second Friday of the month which means the Folly Beach Community Center will be hosting a free yoga class and potluck. Kids are welcome to join, so bring a mat and we’ll see you at 7 p.m.


Whether you’re there to compete or cheer someone on, you won’t want to miss this year’s Sand Sculpting Competition kicking off at 9a.m. on Isle of Palms.

No better way to wind down than a 45 minute vinyasa flow, followed by 30 minutes of yin and wine to end the night. Head over to Urban Yoga from 5-7 p.m to flow and let the work week stress go.

Grab your finest dancing shoes and head on over to the Mount Pleasant Pier for Shaggin’ on the Cooper. Spend the night groovin’ to live music from The Coppertones as you enjoy food and beverages available onsite.
