In the Know

Monica Kreber, Reporter

If you are new to the area Third Thursday is a great time to explore downtown Summerville, listen to some local bands and check out the stores. It is also a great time to network and hand out your business card. In particular, those of us at The Summerville Journal Scene enjoy getting pictures of families having a good time. I have never been to the annual Sweet Tea Festival, so I am looking forward to slurping some sweet tea and nibbling on snacks.
