March 2015 Events in the Lowcountry
Spring is an exciting time in the Lowcountry! If you’re looking for things to do in Mount Pleasant or Charleston, you won’t have to look far. These waterfront cities host some of the finest culinary and cultural events in the South. People from all over the country and all over the world travel to experience good eats and treats in our charming seaside city! I’ve listed a few of my favorites below.
Charleston is known for having one of the top culinary scenes in the world, so it’s only fitting that local and national chefs, restaurateurs, and spirits experts gather in the Lowcountry for the Charleston Food + Wine Festival.
Catch the Leprechaun 5K
Thursday, March 12 | Mt. Pleasant Waterfront Park
May the luck of the Irish be with you as you race to beat the tiny green Leprechaun (win a prize if you do!).
