Where to celebrate Fourth of July in the Charleston region | 2018
Celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave at the Charleston region’s best Fourth of July parties. We like to think of them as the ultimate celebration of community! Also take a few minutes this Wednesday to thank our service men and women for their countless sacrifices. More than 90,000 Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, civilians, dependents, and retirees call the Lowcountry home. Show thanks for them, love for country, and unity with one another this year in your best red, white, and blue, and enjoy community wherever you find it!
