This month, we celebrate Independence Day (4th), National Hot Dog Day (15th) and a host of other fun holidays.

Many facilities have now reopened and activities have resumed in the Charleston, SC area. This has been accompanied by an increase in the number of live events scheduled for the month of July, compared to recent months.

However, as the number of positive COVID-19 cases has continued to rise locally, several scheduled events have been cancelled or postponed. As for celebrating July 4th this year, the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has just issued a press release that recommends doing so safely at home. 

As of the release date of this blog, the following events are still scheduled, but we encourage you to confirm details with event organizers moving forward. Also, please remember to observe the recommended safety guidelines - the mask ordinances that have just gone into effect in several area municipalities (monitor this summary list) are intended to protect us and our families.
