Ben Sawyer-color1Provided by Creative Spark

During the week that the Ben Sawyer Bridge is closed, residents of Sullivan’s Island will find plenty to do without leaving the island. Every night during the bridge closing, residents can choose a local restaurant and take advantage of special prices “Bridge Closing” prices.

On Sunday, December 6 (or the first Sunday that the Ben Sawyer Bridge is closed for repairs), islanders are invited to a big party in Stith Park next to the Fire Station. Primetime Fitness will kick off the festivities at 1pm with an all-ages fun run up the Causeway. As the race ends, Adande drummers will lead islanders to the top of the mound for a community drum circle and photo opportunity. The fun continues in the park with Elise Testone’s “Slanguage” and the island boy band “The 3 Dudes” performing in the bandstand sponsored by Home Team BBQ, a pie eating contest sponsored by Seel’s, craft-making with Creative Spark sponsored by Dr. Cynthia Holmes Ophthalmology , jump castles, s’more making sponsored by Southeastern Spine Institute, face painting and more. The entertainment is free. Other activities require a wrist band purchase of $5 which benefits the Park Foundation. Wrist bands are available at Sullivan’s Town Hall and will be sold at the Fire Station the day of the event. Please note that the event date is subject to change, but will be held the Sunday during the bridge closing weather permitting.

An all-ages after party will be held at Home Team BBQ with local favorite band “The Whisperjets”.

Many island businesses will also offer their customers the option of adding $1 to their tab to support the Sullivan’s Island Park Foundation. The Sullivan’s Island Park Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation formed in 1990 as a community based response to the devastation of Hurricane Hugo. Its purpose is the restoration, development, and maintenance of the public park and recreational facilities for the use of the public on Sullivan’s Island.
