Goose Creek celebrates 50th birthday

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Once a sleepy town, the now bustling Goose Creek is celebrating its 50th birthday.

The year-long celebration will feature a historic scavenger hunt, outdoor movies and concerts.

Last month, business week magazine selected Goose Creek as the top small city in South Carolina for raising children. The magazine cited such things like schools, crime rate and quality of life.

The city was first incorporated in 1961 with a little over 3,000 residents. Today, the city has grown to over 40,000 people.
