Penn Center Heritage Days Celebration under way


There is a lot of excitement going on at the 30th Annual Penn Center Heritage Days Celebration on St. Helena Island.

On Friday, school groups took center stage performing all kinds of acts as part of the Youth Day activities. Throughout the weekend, the festival will continue to showcase the history of Penn School and celebrate the rich cultural of the Gullah Geechie people of the Sea Islands with all kinds of food, fun and performances.

"It's a homecoming," said Ben Johnson Jr. "You see people you haven't seen in years and just the celebration itself makes it a great three days."

On Saturday, they'll hold the Annual Heritage Days Parade as well as a number of performances including Aunt Perlie Sue.
