Festival goers participate in croquet tournament

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort Water Festival is in full swing.

On Monday, many participants hit Waterfront Park for the Water Festival Croquet Tournament. They're playing golf croquet. Later this week, they'll be playing backyard croquet. It's an event many look forward to each year.

"It's a fun activity because I think everyone once upon a time played as kids and while we're mostly all adults, we still like to go back and try it," said Stan Abrahamson, the croquet tournament director.

It has changed over the years, but the annual croquet tournament has been part of the festival for nearly 25 years.
