Summer is just around the corner and life is already heating up in Rock Hill. The weather should be great this month, perfect for popping open an ice-cold Coke and getting over to one of the many outdoor events taking place in and around Rock Hill during the month of May.
On Thursday May 4th starting at 6 p.m., you’ll have the opportunity to pick your own delicious strawberries at a discounted price. In addition to the fresh strawberries, the Pick-n-Flick event held at the Anne Springs Close Greenway Field Trial Barn will offer a wide variety of family-friendly activities and local vendors serving up some great food. The evening will end with a free movie showing at dusk. Pack a picnic blanket and plan to stay for the whole evening!
8th Annual South Carolina Strawberry Festival
The Pick-n-Flick event is just the beginning of the 8th Annual South Carolina Strawberry Festival. Held in Fort Mill, the Festival will run from 5-11 p.m. on Friday, May 5th and from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday, May 6th. During the festival you’ll enjoy a pageant, a golf tournament, concerts, contests, and a car show. And, of course, you’ll want to pick up a couple of buckets of strawberries to make a few strawberry pies (the secret ingredient is Sprite!).
