Founders Park Low Country Boil will be held June 16th, 2018. Mark your calendars for the 3rd annual Friends of Founders Park’s Low Country  Shrimp Boil, Saturda beginning at 5 with dinner served between 6 and 8pm. 

Founders Park was completed in 2017, has undoubtedly become the center of activity in Highlands, and is the perfect setting for an evening to remember.

This event continues to draw crowds to the park, which is located on Pine Street in Highlands. The cost is only $60 per person and includes 2 drink tickets and your meal, all served up with a heaping plateful of fun. The tables will be set under the big tent on the ice rink near the fireplace and seating is limited to 300. 

The Ugly Dog Pub will be staffing the bar while the famed chefs of Hudson’s  Classic Catering will be dishing out their famous combination of shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. “I can’t say enough about Hudson’s,” says board member, Bill Edwards. “ They do an amazing job, and I think they’re one of the reasons our event sold out last year.”

Live music will be provided by Fletcher's Grove. Hailing from Charlestown, West Virginia, they’re known for their high-energy shows mixing fierce rhythmic foundations, guitar solos, and an Appalachian-tinged mix of genres that makes standing still nearly  impossible.

Founders Park has continued to offer an outdoor gathering place in Highlands since construction began in 2014. The facilities include a long list of amenities, such as the stage pavilion, courtyard plaza, picnic areas, Wi-Fi, shade trees, plantings, and much more. All this requires a lot of upkeep and Edwards said, “The proceeds from our fundraiser benefit landscaping and park improvements, including color.”

The Event will be Held under the big tent rain or shine, it sold out quickly last year, so don’t wait to get your tickets for Friends of Founders Park Low Country Shrimp Boil, Saturday, June 16th. Tickets are available online at FoundersParkHighlands.org., Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust, The Dry Sink, The Highlands Chamber of Commerce.
