The SEA & SAND FESTIVAL, Folly's biggest and last until next fall - Sat. DAY 1

Postponed by Folly Beach to this date because of a forecast of severe thunderstorms on Mar.29.

We can either join at Blu's front beach Tiki bar at the Tides Hotel on Sat. April 12 at 1:30 pm or gather and park at my house 12 - 1 pm for a quick drink (otherwise parking will be difficult to find elsewhere). Then from my house, we could make the 5-10 min. walk to Blu's Tiki bar to meet those who are already gathered there. At about 2 pm, we will leave the Tiki bar and move on to the closed off Center Street for the music, wining and dining. Others could bring their bathing suits, and remain at the beach. For those who don't know my address, it is at the very bottom of this page. Pay particular attention to the directional map provided here, as your GPS will possibly be attempting to guide you through the streets closed off for this festival.

Long range weather forecast looks good for the entire weekend.

I live in the only "new homes" subdivision on Folly Beach. Very few people know that all this parking exists in this subdivision. There will be plenty of parking in this subdivision, as no one on Folly owns the first 10 ft of their lawns...so park on someone's lawn. Just keep your tires off the street pavement and follow other usual parking rules such as not blocking driveways or intersection curbs. Allow extra time for probable heavy traffic entering Folly Beach when there is something going on like a festival or a gorgeous beach day.

    Yeah Cherie, plenty of bikers ride up to Folly, but none are intimidating. If there are any intimidating bikers in Charleston, they would probably be chased out of Folly by our finest at Public Safety. Folly is just too small to hide at. Anyway, only Harley bikers are allowed on Folly (lol).

  • Cherie!!

    Anybody want to get an intimidating bicycle gang together and ride up on Folly? lol

  • Michele F.

    Elena, I have brought my dog to these festivals many times. There will be tons of other dogs there. And Tricia, I doubt your parrot will get board, based on my experience with a previous Folly friend with a parrot who brought him everywhere. Your parrot will probably have to keep at full attention with all the bird dogs there staring at her.

      That's true...she's a small parrot (White Bellied Caique) and she loves attention and having her picture taken. I usually take her out in a pet stroller because she won't wear her harness. She's contrary. lol

    I don't mind....I'd bring my parrot, but she'd get bored and make a ruckus.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
