Remember that the Fall Feast will be here before you know it! Tickets are still available at the Swan Lake Visitors Center for $25 each, but they won’t last long.
The Fall Feast has become an annual social highlight, as well as a chance to try some great (and adventurous) food while listening to wonderful music and meeting up with old and new friends. Last year, I went straight for the frog legs (my favorite), but also ventured to taste some rattlesnake stew. It was…interesting! The Fall Feast at USC Sumter is probably the only place to try dishes like these, along with alligator, different kinds of seafood dishes, and so many desserts that you’ll be tempted to try and smuggle some out the door (although this behavior is not encouraged—something I know from first-hand experience).
Nikki and DaBlooze will be the featured entertainment in the outdoor concert area, and with the cool nights we’ve been having lately, the whole thing ought to be a BLAST.
By the way, there’s no need to wait until the 16th to enjoy some fabulous live music. The immensely talented and rockin’ Chief Complaint are playing a special benefit concert at the Sumter Opera House on September 12th. Sumter’s own band of doctors will bring the house down with a special free show for Prepare the Way Ministries and Sumter Green. If you think that Greg House is the only doctor who knows how to rock, prepare to be amazed!
