Lowcountry Strawberry festival undergoes expansion for this year
April 6, 2013 by Mark
The Lowcountry Strawberry Festival, which is held annually at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, recently announced that this year the event will held in prime time, with expanded hours to being open at night. No doubt flyer printing and poster printing are being used to publicize this very popular event.
The main focus of the festival has always been to enjoy the strawberries and the overall fun on the farm, but Boone Hall is expanding the events of the festival this year in order to engage more people.
More than 30 attractions, of different kinds and aimed at all ages, will be featured and will range from thrill-seekers offerings to more gentle affairs designed for families to ride together. There will also be magic shows, pig races, festival-type foods, and the offer to pick strawberries during the daytime hours. The Certified South Carolina Grown program of the South Carolina Department of Agriculture and the town are working in cooperation with Boone Hall to present the festival.
Prices for admission have been reduced from previous years in order to make it more attractive for the family budget. Opening night is Thursday April 18 from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm and it has been designated as student night. It will continue up until Sunday, April 21. A special wristband can be purchased for just the first night that enables them to ride everything in the festival. This offer is not exclusive to student.
