Second Chance Bikes Fall Festival
Second Chance Bike’s fourth annual Fall Festival returns to Holy City Brewing with tons of family fun and “tiny bike” activities. The Fall Festival includes games for all ages, plus a vendor market by Holy City Farmers Market and music from Charleston ensemble The Crispy Bois. Don’t miss the locally curated silent auction featuring items from more than 40 local businesses, a DIY caramel apple station from Grow Food Carolina and a station from Craft and Canvas that teaches how to turn used bike tubes into crafts. Second Chance is a nonprofit that restores, sells and gives away used bikes. Proceeds from the event will help launch a second location to better serve the community.
