The Reggae on the Creek party and benefit show in Mt. Pleasant is an annual autumn highlight for local music fans. Already in it's fifth year, the festivities are set for Sun. Oct. 16 at Vickery’s Bar and Grill on Shem Creek (1313 Shrimpboat Lane).

Hosted by the Tanzanian Education Foundation, the party will feature live reggae and funk on the dock by local ensemble Dub Island and the Dubplates and special guests. Vickery’s will offer specials on Red Stripe and Sweetwater beer, rum drinks, and Caribbean dishes from noon until dark.

The nonprofit foundation provides the children of Tanzania an opportunity to receive a proper education and a chance to overcome poverty. Local volunteers Nicole Miller and Erica Oblinger are among several Charlestonians who’s traveled to Tanzania and worked locally to raise funds and awareness for the organization.

A donation of $5 is requested at the door. Proceeds from Reggae on the Creek will go toward providing educational scholarships to the children of Meru View Day School in Arusha. A shuttle service from K-Mart on Highway 17 is available for those looking for extra parking.
