We made it through another work week! That means it must be time for the Friday Five, our weekly roundup of five fun events happening throughout the Lowcountry over the weekend. Make a dash for doughnuts, check out a vintage market, take your pup out for a fun day, and more. As always, whatever you choose to do, the staff and agents at Johnson & Wilson Real Estate Company wish you a safe and happy weekend!
Be sure to check out Vintage Market Days of Charleston this weekend at the Exchange Park in Ladson, starting at 10am on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This event has been voted one of Country Living Magazine’s “7 Flea Markets & Barn Sales You Won’t Want to Miss!” Vintage Market Days is an upscale, vintage-inspired indoor/outdoor market featuring original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, handmade treasures, home decor, outdoor furnishings, consumable yummies, seasonal plantings, and more. Join in the fun and shop some of the very best vintage vendors from across the country.
Join runners and walkers in West Ashley on Saturday morning for the 4th annual Doughnut Dash in honor of TyWanza Sanders, a victim of the Emanual AME church shooting. This family-friendly fun run/walk is held each year by Race 4 Achievement Inc. with support from the Charleston Jewish Community Center. The race begins at the South Windermere Shopping Center and continues down the Greenway to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, where participants will eat a dozen doughnuts and run or walk back. This event is a fundraiser that helps both organizations continue their missions of strengthening the community and supporting diversity in the Charleston community. A portion of the funds raised will be donated to the TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund, providing college scholarships for students in Charleston County Schools.
