Dog lovers, after a long day at work, pick up your pooch and join the fun at events held in May especially for dog owners. Charleston County Parks introduces Pups, Yups and Food Trucks on select evenings at Mount Pleasant Palmetto Islands County Park. And, the popular Yappy Hour series returns to James Island County Park.
Mingle with friends old and new while your dog visits with his favorite pals. Both events will be on select Thursdays, so come out starting at 4 p.m. to enjoy beverages and live music in the park with your dog.
Pups, Yups and Food Trucks will debut May 9 at Palmetto Islands County Park. Join other area dog owners for live music, food trucks and beverages in the meadow at this beautiful Mount Pleasant park. Afterward, let your dog run around the nearby dog park to socialize.
Starting May 16, the popular Yappy Hour series returns to James Island County Park. Held right in the off-leash dog park, dog owners can enjoy live music on stage and beverages for sale, while their dogs enjoy an evening in the park.
Best of all, both events are free with general park admission ($1 per person or free with Charleston County Parks’ Gold Pass). Beverages and food are available for an additional fee. Outside alcohol and coolers are prohibited.
