Festival on South Carolina coast nearing end

BLUFFTON, SC (AP) - A weeklong festival of food and music is winding up on the southern end of the South Carolina coast.

The annual Music to Your Mouth event continues on Saturday at Palmetto Bluff, a waterfront community in Bluffton.

Events include a 5K race and a culinary festival with cooking demonstrations and Gail Simmons, a judge on Bravo TV's Top Chef. There's an oyster roast in the evening.

Last year, the event raised more than $10,000 for Second Helpings, a nonprofit that provides food to 65 other nonprofit groups in South Carolina.
