Get ready for a day of fun activities, entertainment, and more! The Lowcountry Shrimp Festival, sponsored by the Archibald Rutledge Academy, focuses on the blessing of the village’s shrimping fleet as local shrimp boat captains and crews prepare themselves for the upcoming shrimp season. Trawlers, adored with colorful flags and pennants, slowly make their way through the parade down Jeremy Creek to receive the prayers of the local clergy for a safe and bountiful season. Following the blessing, a floral wreath will be laid upon the waters as a memorial to those who have been lost at sea. Make sure to bring your lawn chairs and small coolers because we’re planning on being there for the day’s festivities. There will be local entertainment, lots of vendors selling their crafts, and some good food to enjoy throughout the day. Departure time is 8 a.m.
