Discover South Carolina!!
Hello everyone! We recently got the chance-..well, Hunter recently got the chance, to visit the beautiful state of South Carolina! He spent a weekend with his uncle’s family volunteering at Sumter’s annual Iris Festival. The Iris Festival is celebrating the annual bloom of the purple iris plant which is native in Swan Lake, a popular nature reserve in Sumter. Over the weekend, over 30,000 visitors will participate in the festival, which includes entertainment, food, nature walks, car shows, and much more! To finish the weekend, Hunter and his uncle went to Congaree National Park to experience the very rare firefly phenomenon! Every year near the end of May and beginning of June, the male fireflies will begin to flicker in sync, creating a magical light-show in the early hours of the night. An UNFORGETTABLE experience!
