SC Democrats plan traditional Galivants Ferry trip

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A tradition that started in 134 years ago will continue in eastern South Carolina this year.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Wednesday the Galivants Ferry Stump Speaking will be held May 3 in Horry County.

The families of Joseph Holliday and John Monroe Holliday have sponsored the political bash every two years.

The event will be at Pee Dee Farms, the 100-year-old general store on U.S. 501 at the Little Pee Dee River.

The meeting begins with bluegrass music and clogging, followed by speeches from local, state and national Democratic candidates.

All candidates are welcome, but only Democrats are allowed to speak.
