Now that Thanksgiving is over and we’re beginning to emerge from our food comas, it’s time to see what’s going on this weekend throughout the Lowcountry! Visit with Santa at a holiday festival, take in the big game, and shop Small Business Saturday. Whatever you choose to do, we wish you a safe and happy weekend!
Get into the holiday spirit officially with the Freshfields Village Holiday Festival this weekend. Santa will be available for pictures in his workshop there on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (click the link for times and other details). There will be free children’s activities on Saturday, including face painting, balloon twisting, inflatable games, Mechanical Reindeer rides, and complimentary craft and activity booths. Food and treats will be available for purchase from local food vendors. Sunday’s events include Santa’s Little Helpers Yoga for kids and Santa Paws Sunday, during which pets are welcome for pics with Santa!
On Saturday, the Charleston Music Hall and NS2 will present A Motown Christmas. Treat your ears to Christmas musical stylings of members of The Miracles, The Temptations, and The Capitols. This show is sure to be “jam-packed with impeccable harmonies, dazzling choreography, and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves.”
It’s Rivalry Weekend! Clemson and USC will battle for the win this Saturday, and Frothy Beard Brewing Company wants to use the occasion for a good cause. Bring two canned or nonperishable food items to the brewery and get $1 off pints for the day. The winner will be announced on Black Friday. If your team wins, wear your jersey and receive lots of specials while you watch the game.
After all the craziness of Black Friday, shop local at Small Business Saturday, when Summerville will host Passport to Local: Downtown Summerville Small Business Saturday. Pick up your passport at any of the participating businesses listed at the link above. Then shop till you drop, filling your passport with stamps as you go from store to store for a chance to win a gift basket.
Liberty Tap Room & Grill in Mt. Pleasant is hosting a Stranger Things Bingo Brunch on Sunday from 11am until 3pm. If you’re a fan of Eleven and the boys, this is one you won’t want to miss! If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, there’s plenty of time to do a Netflix binge before Sunday! Enjoy some Bingo with a Stranger Things theme and food and drink specials.
