2/25/2010 Edisto Spring Events Promise Warmth, Color, Celebration
Edisto Island, S.C. -- From a quiet corner of the South Carolina Lowcountry, the Edisto Island and Edisto Beach communities will hail the start of spring with the lure of longer days, warmer weather, buds in bloom, and a variety of events to celebrate this long-awaited season. Residents and visitors are invited to shake off winter and get back outside to take in activities such as the Edisto Day Bazaar, the Edisto Art Guild Spring Show and Sale, and a theater production by the Edisto Art Guild Players.
During the last weekend in March, the Edisto Art Guild Players will entertain with a performance of "Bull in a China Shop." Sponsored by the Edisto Art Guild, the production will run March 25 - March 28 and will be held at the Edisto Beach Civic Center, located at 42 Station Court on Edisto Island. The production will begin at 8:00 p.m. March 25 - March 27 and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 28.
Shortly following, Easter weekend will bring local and regional artists to the area for the Edisto Art Guild's Spring Show and Sale. Scheduled for Saturday, April 3, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., the event will be held at the Edistonian General Store, located at 406 Highway 174 on Edisto Island. Early the next morning, the Easter Sunrise service will offer an inspiring way to celebrate the holiday while watching the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. Sponsored by the Edisto Ministerial Alliance, the service will be held on Sunday, April 4, at 6:45 a.m. in the Pavilion parking lot, located off of Palmetto Boulevard on Edisto Beach.
The following month, the streets come alive with the Edisto Day Bazaar, an annual arts and crafts festival sponsored by the King's Daughters. Fun for all ages, the Bazaar will be held on Saturday, May 1, from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at the Lions Club, located at 2907 Myrtle Street on Edisto Beach.
Set in a rare, sparsely-developed corner of the world, Edisto, with its vast green spaces, ancient live oaks, wide open marsh views, and quiet, pristine beach, offers a coastal island experience uncommon today among Eastern seaboard communities. Visitors and residents arrive under a live oak canopy via Highway 174, recently designated by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a National Scenic Byway. Here, there's a slower pace of life, coupled with a broad range of year-round recreational activities, all set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. This is the coastal island destination that is said to offer its own "state of mind...any time, any season."
