The biggest and most noticeable part of May will probably be the Bike Fest, but that’s only one of the many great events that the area has to offer this month. Other options for entertainment include Brookgreen’s black-tie silent auction and Kentucky Derby viewing party, the annual Pawleys Pavilion Reunion, a Sweetgrass basket-making exhibit at Kaminski House, and much more.
Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts will have a blast at Brookgreen Gardens during Scout Days. Children will hike through forest and swamp to learn about the plants and animals of the area. They will also have a chance to earn some badges!More Details
