Many Charleston events and attractions are geared toward families, making Charleston a popular family-friendly destination. If you will be in Charleston on August 19th, head to Liberty Square (by the Aquarium and Charleston Maritime Center) for the 10th Annual First Day Festival for Children & Families.
This free Charleston festival is from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and is packed with fun things for your kids such as face painting, boat rides, educational exhibits and a Kids Zone. The event is focused on promoting health and wellness so there will be plenty of healthy snacks available plus a health and wellness area that provides things like vision screenings for your child.
While the First Day Festival is supported by locals, visitors are encouraged to attend to take part in the fun and help in generating widespread support for education. Since the First Day Festival is in a convenient location, try also taking your child to the South Carolina Aquarium and the Fort Sumter Museum. If you are staying at our Mount Pleasant hotel on August 19th, head out to this great Charleston event for kids.
