Why are Residents of Hilton Head Island Celebrating?

It is a commemorative time for Hilton Head Island and all those who have chosen to call it home, or their home away from home. All week long, Sept.30-Oct.5, Islander’s will be celebrating two significant moments in the history of Hilton Head.

What are we celebrating?

We’re celebrating the moment, 350 years ago, when Captain William Hilton sighted Hilton Head Island. Hilton originally intended the bluff he saw to be a guide for future sailors, naming it “Hilton’s Headland”. We’re also celebrating the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Town of Hilton Head Island!

All week long events are being held to celebrate these moments in our history! It’s such an exciting time, here are a few of the highlights:

  • Community beach party
  • Bus tours
  • Walking tours
  • Varied entertainment
  • Sand castle competition
  • Beach volleyball tournament
  • Boccee
  • Family games on the beach
  • Art Exhibition
  • Open house at Town Hall
  • And so much more!

Here is the flyer provided on http://celebrationhhi.org.

Here’s even more on the history of Hilton Head Island.

If you’re here celebrating the Island’s heritage, I hope you’re having a great time and enjoying all of the events. I highly recommend any of the bus or walking tours to really experience the area’s natural beauty!

Hilton Head Island’s 17th Annual Rib Burnoff ~ A Family Friendly Event

Hilton Head Island Rib BurnoffThere’s never a shortage of things to do and events to attend in Hilton Head Island, and we’re gearing up for another annual event happening this weekend, May 18, 2013!

Close your eyes and imagine the wonderful smells of hickory stoked fires, slow cooked ribs and pulled pork. Mouth watering yet? Then you’ll want to head to the Coastal Discovery Museum of Hilton Head for a premier barbeque event, the 17th annual Rib Burnoff, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club!

This is a very family friendly event where you can enjoy some of the South’s best BBQ and downhome music, complete with the smells I mentioned earlier! The kids can play on inflatable castles and slides in the free children’s area and run in the open fields. This year, each ticket will include 7 samples of either barbeque or ribs, and beer, wine, soda, hot dogs and ice cream will be available for purchase.

What makes the Rib Burnoff so enticing? The restaurants and gifted amateurs start cooking the night before to make their absolute best attempt to wow you with their food, because the better it is, the better chance they’ll have of going home with a trophy and bragging rights! You know you’ll get mouth watering BBQ when there’s a competition involved!

The Rib Burnoff is from 12-4pm. You can purchase tickets in advance for $12 (children under 12 are admitted free) and you can get them through any Kiwanis member, Burke’s Pharmacy, The Coastal Discovery Museum and User Friendly at 29F Hunter Road. If you get them at the door, they are $15.

For more information, you can contact Colin Carrigan 843-689-6070 or colincarrigan@userfriendly.com.
