The Bluffton Boiled Peanut Festival is scheduled for Aug. 23 at the Promenade in Old Town.
The festival will be on State of Mind Street between noon and 5 p.m. and will feature a boiled peanut-eating contest, a peanut bake-off, and a "Lil Goober and Li'l Miss Peanut" contest in which children will be judged based on their dress and their love for boiled peanuts.
The festival will also feature a play area with games and activities, and live music by Georgia Mountain String Company and Waits & Company.
Vendor spots for the festival are available. For more information, contact the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce at 843-757-1010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
