POSTPONED: Saturday’s Ballpark Festival of Beers has been moved to October

Rained out


Everyone put down your pretzel necklaces and start making new Saturday plans — the 17th annual Ballpark Festival of Beers, which was supposed to take place tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the RiverDogs stadium, has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The event has been postponed to Sat. Oct 19 due to “weather threats and field conditions.” Pre-purchased tickets for the event are non-refundable and are good for the postponed date. If you have any ticketing questions call the Riley Park box office at (843)577-3647.

Don’t cry over spilled suds, though — check out our Weekend Roundup and What’s Poppin’ to peep all the rain-friendly events going down this weekend.
