Food is served from 7- 10 pm, and beverages are available for purchase.
On Saturday, join the home from 11 am- 3 pm as judges decide on this year's BBQ champions. BBQ plates are $10 at the door and kids 11 and under eat for $5. Winners of the South Carolina Visitor's Center Bake- Off will be announced, with amateur, child, and professional categories. Desserts will sell for $1.
