Beaufort celebrates International Day of Happiness

Posted: Updated:

Not only is it the first day of spring, but it's also the International Day of Happiness.

What better way to honor the occassion than in Beaufort, which is also called America's Happiest Seaside Town.

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is giving the public a chance to share what makes them happy and why.

Folks have been writing personalized notes on the Live Happy board posted inside the Visitors Center.

Each time it fills up, the chamber will take a picture and post it online.

"Most people that come to Beaufort are looking for that relaxation, that escape and that's why they find our destination as that place to find happiness and we want to celebrate that with everyone today," said Robb Wells, Tourism Division Executive for the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce.

"I would be shocked if it were not the one that was voted the happiest one, it's absolutely beautiful and we couldn't have had a better weekend to have come," said visitor Janice Evatt.  

The Live Happy board will be available for everyone to sign from 6-7 p.m. Thursday at the Waterfront Park.
