13th Annual Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival Kicks Off Saturday

Tomorrow, October 14th the Annual Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival kicks off in Old Town Bluffton, featuring  week-long activities for every age. The list of events grows longer each year – this year plan to attend such activities like the traditional Blessing of the Fleet, take a kayak tour, grab a seafood dinner to benefit Bluffton Self Help, put on your tennis shoes for a road race, bring the kids out for a pint-sized fishing tournament and finally get together with friends and family at Street Fest. This is by far one of my favorite events in Bluffton all year long! If you’ve never walked Calhoun Street during the Street Fest you’re missing out on the fun! This two day long festival includes art displays from over 100 local and regional artists, delicious local seafood, drinks and live entertainment.  But i’m skipping to the end. Read on for a list of special events…
