Tradition is an invisible torch that seems to get brighter as time goes on; passed on from generation to generation, ingraining a lifetime of memories with family and friends to be cherished, and yet again, passed on to children and grandchildren.

The community of Beaufort South Carolina radiates this lifestyle and the friendly people of the Lowcountry have carried the torch since 1956.

The 59th Annual Beaufort Water Festival is here again and the residents of Beaufort couldn’t be more involved. The Lowcountry festival is the longest volunteer run festival in history and the heart and soul that goes into it, is truly magical. Over 400 volunteers work long hours to bring the festival to life, loyal contributors like the Beaufort Lions Club, who have coordinated the parade since the first year in1956 have made inexpensive first class entertainment possible. The Beaufort Water Festival is a series of events that celebrate group sports, arts and crafts, music and dance. The opening ceremony begins at 7pm on July 18th. A free shuttle service will run from Beaufort County Government Center to the festival where the residents will kick off the celebration with the Paris Island Marine Band and a show of fireworks at dusk less than 10 minutes from Coosaw Point, Real Estate Scorecard’s 2013 Happiest Community of the Year.
