I have a friend that is taking over the Race Director role for the Coffin Island 5k on Folly Beach on March 29th. I am going to sign up for it and throw them some local support. Please join me and let’s help show our support for our local races! Here are the details.
The 24th Annual Folly Beach Sea & Sand Festival weekend kicks of on Friday night March 28th with Pageant in the Park and a Moonlight Mixer on the Pier at 7pm.
Saturday morning starts a new day of celebration with the Coffin Island 5K at 9 a.m. then Art in the Park, Carnival Games, Jump Castles, Kids Activities, a Silent Auction and Nearly 100 Local Food, Art & Crafts Vendors on Center Street 11am – 5pm.
Sunday is filled with beach time including a surfing contest, a sand sculpting contest and much more.
All proceeds go to the Folly Beach Children’s Parks Fund. The objective this year is to raise enough money to have a ferris wheel installed. Thank you for your support.
