July 4th Independence Day

Happy Independence Day, everyone! If you’re looking for ways to celebrate over the July 4th weekend, check out this article and our list below. You’ll see that there’s something for everyone across the metro area.  Later in the month, there’s the 10-day Beaufort Water Festival starting on the 14th and the 18th Annual Sweetgrass Festival in Mount Pleasant on the 23rd. National Vanilla Ice Cream Day is also on July 23rd, and if you are looking to celebrate it properly, stop by The Crazy Mason Milkshake Bar off of the IOP connector for a special ice cream treat.
