As grad students, the summer is supposed to be a time for us to relax and enjoy ourselves. However, sometimes it can be a daunting task to figure out what exactly to do with our nights off. Do we watch TV, sleep, read a book, go to the movies, go to a bar? Sometimes none of these options sound appealing. So I did a little research to see what unique events Charleston has to offer, and surprisingly, there are a lot!
Charleston County Parks hosts a Reggae Concert Nights Series throughout the summer. If you want to be surrounded by good music and good vibes, this series is the place for you. It features traditional old school roots reggae with a new school attitude in a beautiful outdoor setting. Held at both North Charleston Wannamaker County Park and James Island County Park, these concerts are a great way to have fun while seeing the different parks within the Charleston area. The concerts are held on Saturday nights throughout the summer, and adult admission is only $8. Park gates open at 7:30 p.m., and the music begins at 8:30 p.m. Be sure to bring your own chairs and blankets, but leave your alcohol and coolers at home. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the concerts!
Here is a list of the dates and locations of events throughout the summer:
June 11- The Resolvers at the James Island County Park
