PRT hosting trip to Charleston
Join Aiken County Parks, Recreation and Tourism on an overnight trip to Charleston County.
On Dec. 6 and 7, Aiken County PRT is hosting a trip to Charleston County to enjoy a variety of attractions like the Holiday Festival of Lights at the James Island County Park.
The cost is $110 per person, and the deadline to RSVP and pay is Friday.
Participants will eat at the Tomato Shed Cafe and visit the Angel Oak, a Southern live oak tree on Johns Island, which is estimated to be 300 to 340 years old. It is 65 feet tall and is thought to be one of the oldest living organisms east of the Mississippi River.
The Holiday Festival of Lights event includes a 3-mile drive through light displays with millions of twinkling bulbs.
There will also be shopping at Tanger Outlets.
Participants will spend the night at Tides on Folly Beach.
The trip will leave on Dec. 6 in Aiken at 9 a.m. from the PRT main office at 828 Richland Ave. W., and in Wagener at 9:30 a.m. from the Courtney Center at 49 Roy St.
