SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Coastal Empire is kicking off the first weekend of June with a bang.
You can hear live music on the square, taste bourbon made right here in Savannah, and have a chance to meet the WTOC First Alert Weather Team.
On Friday, be sure to join WTOC at the Coastal Empire Hurricane Expo.
WTOC and emergency management agencies from Chatham, Liberty, Effingham and Bryan counties are ready to get your family prepared for hurricane season. The expo is at the Lowes on Pooler Parkway, Friday from 3:30 to 7:30 pm. Our first alert weather team will be there with valuable information, plus, plenty of prizes and giveaways. Enjoy food trucks and even get a tour of the First Alert Storm Chaser. Details here.
On Saturday, head over to Ghost Coast Distillery for Bourbon, BBQ and Blues! Ghost Coast is celebrating the second release of its straight bourbon whiskey with an all day blues party. There will be live music all day long plus barbecue from BowTie BBQ. A portion of the proceeds will go to the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire, benefiting the families of fallen first responders.
