Arts Center opens holiday season on Hilton Head Island with annual tree lighting
The holiday season is here, but so is a forecast that will bring rain showers to Beaufort County this weekend.
The weather isn’t dampening our holiday spirit in the area, though. The Bluffton Christmas Parade will happen rain or shine, according to a press release.
That’s all good news for those who don’t care about getting a little wet while ringing in some holiday cheer. Here are some other holiday events that won’t involve getting damp.
Shop at the Holiday Boutique
The Society of Bluffton Artists will have its 6th Holiday Boutique event through Dec. 14.
You can buy holiday gifts and decorations, among other items created by local artists. Prices range from $15 to $350, according to a release.
You can stop by 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Saturday, and then 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
