It’s “Taste of Folly” Time
Saturday is when all the fun begins on the streets of Folly. The streets will close at 7:00 am and will reopen at 6:30 pm. The admission to the event is $5 per person but kids 12 and under are free. There will be several different things happening on this day that you don’t want to miss out on. The street festival will begin at 10:00 am and will end at 4:00 pm on Center Street. Go and see what kind of fun and amazing things you can find. We promise you won’t be disappointed in the choosing.
If you are more interested in cooking demonstrations, there will be select restaurants that are going to have live demonstrations at their booths throughout the day. And if you have ever been told you love hot dogs too much, then head over to Bert’s Market to enter into the Hot Dog Eating Contest. This is a free event for you to take part in so why not go and have a little fun while eating hot dogs. If chili is more your style, then head over to Center Street from 11 am to 3 pm and participate in the Chili Cook Off. For $5 per person you will be able to taste the chili’s that are being judged and vote on your favorite. Not only are you able to take part in the Hot Dog Contest, but you can also enter into the Oyster Shucking Contest too. Beginning at 2:30 pm at the Ashley Stage, you and your family can enjoy this contest to see who can shuck the most and the fastest in a certain amount of time.
Kids Area & Live Music
For those of you who will be traveling with little ones, then take advantage of coming to Taste of Folly and let them enjoy the Kids Area. There will be a Kids Kitchen by Good Clean Fun that comes complete with pots & pans percussion, soapy sudsy kitchen and pasta making. Plus, there will be free inflatables for them to enjoy and get all their energy out and culinary-inspired arts and crafts from the Folly Beach Library. And if you’d like to be able to enjoy some live music with the family then head over to one of the 3 stages where you can enjoy some Folly musicians.
If you haven’t gotten to take advantage of coming to Folly during the month of January, then you must book your trip today. We still have availability for you and your family to getaway to the beach away from the cold air. And if you think that you won’t be able to find a deal, then just ask as we have some of the cheapest oceanfront option all over Folly Beach for you to take advantage of. We at Folly’s Best Rentals wanted to let you know that now is the time to book your vacations for February and March. There are a few things happening that benefit the Morris Island Lighthouse which is so very dear to our island. We can’t wait to see you this winter as we celebrate many things happening on Folly Beach!
