Pizzapalooza Sunset Party
Author: Special to CH2
Now celebrating its third season, The Bluffton Sunset Parties are back by popular demand. Held on Friday nights from 5-9 p.m. at the Bluffton Oyster Factory Park on the May River, each sundown celebration features a different theme, with a vast variety of activities, a food court, craft beer garden and live music.
The 2014 Bluffton Sunset Party Series kicks off its 2014 schedule on May 16 with Pizzapalooza —a pizza & pasta food festival. Local restaurants will serve up their signature pies and pastas while live music will resound from Hannah Wickland and The Neil & Bob Band.
Also slated for the Bluffton Sunset Party Series for this summer are Blues & Brews of the Bluff on June 13, May River Shrimp Festival on July 18, Dog Days of Summer on August 15, and Blufftemberfest on September 19.
You can party with your pooch at these family- and pet-friendly sunset parties which benefit the Palmetto Animal League, a no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization serving homeless animals in the Lowcountry. Everyone is welcome. Come by boat, bike, or golf cart. Lawn chairs and leashed pets are permitted, but no outside food or drinks will be allowed.
“We love to host these events because they are so well received and attended by locals,” said Mark Weisner, event coordinator. “It is a lot of fun to see Bluffton families and friends come together to enjoy the parties on the beautiful May River and sunset as a backdrop. It’s all about raising some money for PAL and celebrating Bluffton and how lucky we are to live here.”
Pizzapalooza is presented by Kroger, Mosquito Nix and Sport Clips. Tickets are $5 at the door; children 12 & under get in free. For more information visit blufftonsunsetparty.com or call Bear Foot Sports at (843) 757-8520.
