Looking for something to do this weekend? How about the Gullah Festival in Beaufort? The 18th annual Gullah Festival kicked off today at Beaufort High school's stadium with lots of entertainment, vendors, and Southern cooking. The festival is a time to celebrate the culture of the heritage that began with slaves from west Africa.
It's so popular, people come from all over the world to join in the celebration. "It's a beautiful festival and I hope it continues years and years to come," said Betty Brooks from New Jersey.
