The Boat Parade will depart from Nivens Creek at 11, and make its way around the peninsula, landing at Windjammer at 12:30. Hang out at Windjammer for the 1:00 Carolina Show Ski Team's Performance.
After you've had a chance to rest and clean up, join the Tega Cay Lions Club for their annual Fish Fry from 4:30-7:30. Following the Fish Fry join us for the City Ceremonies and our Birthday Party (with cake!). At 9:30, we’ll end the celebration under the stars enjoying the fireworks.
