Sunday Dec. 15 marks the first-ever Third Sunday on King Street, an identical extension of downtown Charleston’s ever-popular 2nd Sunday on King Street event.
The theme will be holiday shopping, family gatherings, food and music. There will be carolers in period costume, strolling bagpipes, gift and shopping promotions and delectable dining on the street.
Second Sunday on King Street is the premiere monthly event in historic downtown Charleston when locals and visitors are invited to shop, dine and enjoy Charleston’s “Main Street” on a vehicle-free, pedestrian-only afternoon from 1 to 5 p.m.
At the Information Tent, guests will have an opportunity to sign a piece of Charleston history. The new Gaillard Center Foundation will host a beam signing honoring a milestone for the new state-of-the-art performance and exhibition hall, park and municipal offices. Gaillard Foundation representatives will be on hand to provide information about the project.
Now in its fourth year, 2nd Sunday on King Street is the most attended, regularly-scheduled event ever held on the Charleston Peninsula, with monthly guests numbering in the thousands. It is an opportunity for downtown Charleston shops and restaurants to extend their award-winning brand of hospitality while participating in a truly unique affair that is recognized locally, regionally and nationally.
Second Sunday and the new December events, Third Sunday on King Street and Fourth Sunday on King Street, are business development initiatives that support downtown Charleston’s balance and livability.
