It’s time once again for the Friday Five, our weekly roundup of five fun events happening throughout the Charleston area over the weekend. Celebrate Father’s Day with Dad this weekend by taking him out for some live music and drinks; an event to benefit veterans and their families; World Juggling Day; and more! Whatever you choose to do, the staff and agents at Johnson & Wilson Real Estate Company wish you a safe and happy weekend…and a very happy Father’s Day!
Board the Carolina Queen at the City Marina on Friday evening for the Jam on the Water Concert Cruise. This 21+ concert cruise series sales once a month through November and costs just $23 per person. This month’s feature is the music of Jimmy Buffett played by Folly Pirates Over 40. Drifter Merch will be on hand to sell music-inspired t-shirts, and there will be seasonal selections from Sweetwater and a full wine and liquor cash bar. Pre-cruise gathering starts at 5pm at Salty Mike’s.
If jazz is more your speed, check out the Jazz on the Harbor After Hours Event at the South Carolina Aquarium Friday evening. Enjoy the open-air concert on the water or listen to the lilting tunes as you make your way through the Aquarium’s galleries. The event is 21+, and tickets are $45 for non-members and $40 for members. The all-inclusive ticket includes sustainably-sourced small plates from Good Catch partners and a beer and wine bar.
Also on Friday night, join Palmetto Warrior Connections for the Red, White, & Blue Jean Ball, benefitting local veterans and their families. The event takes place at Charles Towne Landing’s Founders Hall from 7pm until 10pm. Take in the live entertainment under the stars as you sip libations and enjoy food from some of Charleston’s favorite restaurants. A $50 General Admission ticket includes unlimited beer, wine, and food, live entertainment, and more. A $75 VIP ticket includes the above as well as early entry, a sneak peek at the silent auction, a commemorative glass, and access to an exclusive VIP lounge with a special bar.
For a fun family event, head to White Point Gardens to celebrate World Juggling Day with the Charleston Juggling Club. The theme for this year’s event is “Joggling and Juggling,” which means there will be a full-sized joggling board for people to juggle on, under, or around…or simply play on! Everyone from experienced jugglers to those who have always wanted to learn is invited to drop by and join in this fun, free event. As an added bonus, there will also be watermelon.
Sunday is Father’s Day, so we’re going to give you a few bonus options here! No matter what Dad’s into, there’s fun to be had on this Father’s Day Sunday. Start the day out with Bendy Brewski Yoga at Holy City Brewing. Then head on over to Wild Blue Ropes Adventure Park, where Dads Climb Free! If Dad would rather watch sports than participate, you might want to take him to Bay Street Biergarten for Germany vs. Mexico in the World Cup Soccer series, or take him down to The Joe for some RiverDogs Baseball. Maybe trivia is more Dad’s speed. If fun and games are more Dad’s speed, take Dad to Ghost Monkey Brewery for Name the Music or to Oak Road Brewery for Brewery Bingo. For even more Father’s Day fun, check out the events calendar over at Holy City Sinner.
