CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -  The Bluesberry Jam and Lowcountry Blueberry Festival is returning for its fifth year to Blue Pearl Farms on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Gates open at 11 a.m.

The Blue Pearl Farms is located on 9760 Randall Road in McClellanville.

Attendees are invited to take on the challenge of breaking the world record for the Blueberry Toss, in which one person throws a blueberry, and their teammate catches it in their mouth. The record stands at 43 feet 6 inches.

Festival features include demonstrations, mini-workshops, and live music.

A portion of the proceeds from the festival will benefit the Friends of Coastal South Carolina conservation program working in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Preserve.

Sea Turtle Team environmental guides will provide the opportunity to experience hands-on exploration activities to learn more about the Preserve.

Visitors may bring a blanket or chairs to enjoy musical entertainment provided by a variety of blues musicians including Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Mick Taylor, Bobby Blue Band, John Lee Hooker, and Lee Shot Williams. Jig Wiggler opens for Atlanta harmonica player Dr. Dixon Bh.D., "The Blues Physician," and the Operators featuring Nature Boy Nik. Additional guest musicians will join throughout the day.

As evening arrives, the jam with Charleston bluesmen will continue with John Picard, Silent Eddie Phillips, and Jojo Wall as High Gravity takes the stage by Cypress Pond.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and free for children 15 and under. The event is open to all ages. Guests are asked to leave pets at home.

Food, drinks, beer, and wine will be available. No outside alcohol or coolers will be permitted.
