April showers bring…May events! From sporting events to food festivals, there’s something everyone can enjoy in the Charleston area this May. Check out some of The Factory team’s favorite upcoming activities:
May 2: RiverDogs Game
It’s baseball season! Buy seam peanuts and crackerjacks and root for Charleston’s home team, the RiverDogs! The team will be playing its first home game of the month against Lakewood. Leaving from your apartment at The Factory, you’ll be at the stadium in under 20 minutes.
May 3 – 7: North Charleston Art Festival
The 35th Annual North Charleston Art Festival is held just a three-minute drive from The Factory at the North Charleston Convention Center. This event has incredible visual, performing, and media art, making it something everyone can enjoy.
May 5: Cinco de Mayo
Let’s taco ‘bout Cinco de Mayo! The Factory residents can enjoy food and fun right outside their apartment doors at the pool. The party will include music, snacks, a photobooth, and more. We can’t wait to see our residents there!
May 6: Waterpark Opening
We’re already enjoying the warm weather, now we’ll get to enjoy it at the waterpark! Starting May 6, Whirlin’ Waters at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park and Splash Island at Mt. Pleasant Palmetto Islands County Park will be open on the weekends. (If you can wait until May 29, they’ll be open daily!)
May 21: Burger Throwdown
The 3rd Annual Burger Throwdown at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina is a must-do! Featuring live bands, local brews, and of course, the best burgers in the Lowcountry, the event is a day full of fun. The best burger joints in the area will be competing for the top prize, a chance to move on to compete in the World Food Championship. Buy your tickets at the gate and enjoy burgers by the water, just twenty minutes from your Factory apartment!
