The Brookland Beach Bash took place on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at the West Columbia Riverwalk Park and Amphitheater and was an event that championed the idea of bringing the beach to Columbia for those who don’t want to travel to the coast. It featured many free activities that one could find in a beach environment without having to worry about sharks, jellyfish and pesky beach sand getting in your everything.
- Free Kayaking and Tubing of the Congaree River (Palmetto Outdoor Center, Canoeing for Kids)
- Multiple outside activities such as frisbee, volleyball, hoola hoops, badminton, cornhole, kickball etc. (Todd and Moore Sporting Goods)
-Beer and Food Truck Vendors (KW Beverage Columbia, Lil Duck Kombucha, Incredible Italian Ice, Kinda Cheezy, Ashley's Yummy Tummy Catering, Brain Freeze, LLC, Cha Cha's Food Truck, Los Chicanos Food Truck)
-Live Music (Prettier Than Matt, Boo Hag, Kings For A Day)
-Inflatable Jump Activities Including a Bungee Trampoline (Jumperee, LLC-Bungee Trampoline/Inflatable Rentals)
And many other activities for kids like face painting (Emerald's Aristry Face Painting) arts and crafts, balloon crafting and historic tours of Congaree.
As the sun set guests were able to watch the old classic movie "The Sandlot" on a projected screen courtesy of Fun Flicks of the Upstate. There's no word on when the next one will happen but when it does, grab your sunscreen and hold on to your butts it's going to be a fun ride.
Here's some of my Favorite Photos from the day:
