What Bluffton Does Best: Have Fun Together

After a nearly two-year hiatus from Bluffton’s events due to the pandemic, the town wants to help bring neighbors together again to make memories. Bluffton has developed a wonderful lineup of children’s and community events to celebrate our parks and each other.

The big news: The town will host its inaugural Independence Day Celebration, Saturday, July 2. It will begin at 5 p.m. and continue through the fireworks display. The festivities begin at Martin Family and DuBois Parks, with live music by Lowcountry Boil Bluegrass Band from 5-8 p.m. Jevon Daly, the lead singer, will also do a 45-minute interactive show for children between the two musical sets.

Along the perimeter of Martin Family Park, children can play interactive games, offering an opportunity to win patriotic-themed prizes at each game station. Come a little hungry, for hot dogs, pretzels, snow cones, and lemonade will be available.

There will be plenty of activities to work off the festive food. Children can play on the rock wall and bungee jump in the parking lot between the two parks. The fireworks will begin at 9 p.m. from Oyster Factory Park. They will be launched from a barge in the May River, so you will also be able to view them from Wright Family Park, Oyster Factory Park, or by boat.

The town is also hosting six movie nights from May 20 through December, rotating this event among the town parks. While you are jotting events down on your calendar, don’t miss out on the two children’s events this summer. The first one, “Jump into Summer,” will be held June 11 at Buckwalter Place Park, and “Slide Out of July” will be held July 16 on the large lawn at Oscar Frazier Park. Each event will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Jump into Summer will feature bounce houses, video games played on a Jumbotron television, lawn games, a deejay playing music, concession stand and fun prizes for participants.

Slide Out of July will feature all those components except bounce houses. Waterslides will be the main activity of this event. Hope to see you, your family, and neighbors at these town events!
