Calhoun Street in Old Town Bluffton will be filled with a sea of people Saturday during one of the community's marquee outdoor events.
The 37th Annual Bluffton Village Festival -- locally known as Mayfest -- will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the historic district.
This family-friendly festival, known for its unique arts and crafts, a variety of entertainment and tantalizing local food, is expected to attract about 9,000 visitors. Admission is free.
The festival has something for everyone -- dogs, kids, collectors, art lovers and food connoisseurs.
The event was created 37 years ago by Babbie Guscio, owner of The Store, to give residents a chance to celebrate Bluffton and be exposed to local craftsmen, artists and musicians.
The event is now coordinated by the Rotary Club of Bluffton and features over 200 vendors.
Complementing the arts and crafts vendors are various local food venders offering shrimp and grits, pulled pork, desserts and a variety of Lowcountry foods.
Among the local favorites are the shrimp salad sandwiches prepared by volunteers from The Church of the Cross.
The Annual Pie Eating Contest and the Ugly Dog contest are also crowd favorites.
Entertainment will take to three stages throughout the day, including local band Muddy Creek.
