It’s time once again for the Friday Five, our weekly roundup of five fun events happening around the Lowcountry throughout the weekend. Don’t forget that this Sunday is Mother’s Day! Take Mom to a party on the beach, do a 5K in her honor, take her to the theater, and more. Whatever you choose to do, the staff and agents at Johnson & Wilson Real Estate Company wish you a happy and safe weekend!
Start the weekend off right with Party at the Point this Friday from 5:30pm until 9:30pm. This week’s all-ages party takes place at Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina and features the Dave Matthews Tribute Band. The 5-piece ensemble from Chattanooga pays homage to the actual Dave Matthews Band by matching the excitement, energy, intensity, and intimacy of a DMB live show. Tickets are $8, and children 12 and under get in free. Bring cash for food and drinks. No coolers or pets allowed.
Postpartum Support Charleston hosts the 15th annual Moms’ Run and Family Fun Day this Saturday at MUSC Health Stadium, from 7am until 11am. This 5K run is the organization’s largest fundraiser, allowing the organization to further its mission of eradicating the stigma surrounding PMADs (perinatal mood and anxiety disorders) to ensure all women who suffer receive support. Participants can run or walk the 5K, which starts at the stadium and winds through Daniel Island before ending back at the stadium for Family Fun Day. Free entertainment includes face-painting by Parkwood Pediatrics, activities with Play Garden, putt-putt with Saltwater Books, music with Black Tie Music Academy, styling with Vanity Salon, and much more!
If you love Singin’ in the Rain as much as we do, listen up! The Footlight Players proudly present the stage adaptation of “the greatest movie musical of all time.” Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item in silent films, but things aren’t always as they seem. Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career when the “talkies” come to the big screen. The only thing that can help save her career is a talented young actress, who will do the talking and singing for her. But will she steal the spotlight in other ways as well? Musical lovers will have three opportunities (Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm) this weekend to see this classic that has delighted audiences for decades!
Take Mom out for Sunday brunch at Tavern and Table or Red’s Icehouse on Shem Creek. Celebrate by taking part in the 3rd annual Just Ducky Race. Rubber ducks are $20 and can be purchased in person at either restaurant or online at the T&T online shop or MUSC’s Just Ducky Race website. Proceeds benefit MUSC Hollings Cancer Center’s research, specifically earmarked for women’s cancers. The winning duck owner will receive a $250 Red’s Icehouse gift card and a $300 Tavern & Table gift card.
If you didn’t get your fill of running on Saturday, head out to Hampton Park on Sunday for MUSC Heart Health’s 4th annual 5K Fun Run/Walk for Healthy Kids. This event raises funds to benefit the Heart Health Program of MUSC’s Children’s Hospital. Run or walk to joint the fight against childhood obesity. Registration fees include a t-shirt, race packet, water, and healthy snacks. There will be official timing with overall and age-group awards. A finisher’s medal will also be given to all who complete the entire 5K course. Day-of registration begins at 8am, warmups kick off at 8:50am, and runners/walkers start and 9am. Bring cash to purchase raffle tickets! The drawing for the fun and exciting prizes takes place after the race.
