SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - It's predicted to be a wet weekend ahead, but Friday didn't stop people from coming out and enjoying the festivities around town. The Annual Flowertown Festival in Summerville kicked off its first day of events.
This is the Summerville YMCA's largest fundraising event of the year benefiting health and wellness programs in the Tri-County.
Umbrellas, rain boots and ponchos were a common sight on Main Street Friday for the festival.
"It's definitely a little gloomy right now," festival goer, Amanda Reagin said.
Rain or shine, the event will go on and some showers aren't going to stop the festival lovers.
"Definitely sticking around if it rains," she said.
Others that came out agree.
"It's awesome, rain or shine I'll be here," festival goer, Elaine Doctor said.
For many coming out to see hundreds of vendors and artists from around country, it's a tradition that keeps on going. Two women from Ridgeville, Doctor and her friend Freda Snipes, have been here since the start of the festival 44 years ago.
