The Second Sunday on King Street series is back today, March 10, and if the weather forecast holds steady, we're in for a beautiful day of strolling a car-less King Street with sunny skies and high topping at 70.
The event will run from 1 to 5 p.m. (you did remember to spring ahead, right?)
Here are details about this month's installment.
In addition to music, shopping, and dining on King between Broad to Calhoun streets, there will be a fashion focus as Charleston Fashion Week organizers join in, "There's no place like King Street for shopping and fashion, and this month's 2nd Sunday on King Street will celebrate just that with a "What Are You Wearing to Charleston Fashion Week" extravaganza! Join the fun as CFW staff, models, and presenting sponsor Baker Motor Company bring pop-up photo shoots, video confessionals and ticket giveaways for CFW Events."
Organizers are also boasting of a number of sales:
