Characteristically of the weather these past few weekends, things will be warm, humid and periodically wet. Sunday being the only day that doesn’t have rain forecasted at some point. Regardless, there’s certainly nothing that should stop anyone from enjoying all the fun things going on across the SouthCoast!

As always, click on the title for more or detailed information on the event. Most of the events were pulled from our event calendar where you can find hundreds of local area events each month. The event calendar is FREE, so if you are a local business, and not taking advantage of FREE publicity, shame on you! Are you a local business and want to sponsor this high traffic, weekend guide?
