Weekend Round-Up: First Flush 

The best events in Charleston, May 18-20

We bet you spent all of Bike to Work Week biking to work. Of course you did. So you should reward yourself at the Charleston Moves Work to Bike Party. And you can bike some more on Saturday at the Bike Rodeo and Safety Fair.

The Treasure Nest Art Fest is a spring show and sale in Mt. Pleasant.

There's a Relay for Life race in town, while the S.C. Special Olympics hold their yearly Bocce Bash.

Hopefully the weather will start to brighten for all the outdoor sporting events happening, like the Arthur Smith Fishing Tournament and Music Festival, the Charleston RiverDogs games, the Charleston Kite Race, Run, Forrest, Run 5K Race, the Capers ECOrun Series, and the Charleston Sprint Triathlon Series.

The Elements Games features some of the goofiest named sports we've ever heard of, like Waboba and Spikeball, plus Ultimate Frisbee.

Head upstairs to Novel. for their Living Vintage event, featuring curated clothing and interior design elements, plus classic cocktails.

The Dee Norton Lowcountry Children's Center Fashion Show will show off looks from Freshfields Village, and the Old Village of North Charleston has their yearly massive yard sale on East Montague on Saturday.

Listen to some reggae mon at Reggae on the Creek.

Brace yourself for Piccolo Fringe by seeing Blast Off?, Improv Smackdown, Improv Riot, or This is Chucktown! And get a last taste of local theater before their occupied with Spoleto crowds with Charley's Aunt, Dinner With Friends, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, God of Carnage, Twelfth Night, or What You Will, and Red (though some of this will reappear at Piccolo). The Jazz Artists of Charleston also have a show before their Mezz series during the festival.

Will the Summerville Community Orchestra's Titanic Commemoration include a rendition of β€œMy Heart Will Go On”? I sure hope so.

Maura Garcia is having a Spoleto Warmup multimedia performance. I think we all could use one too.

Artists Tim Hussey and Bo Joseph partner up for Confluence at Rebekah Jacob Gallery. The opening is Friday and an artist talk is Saturday. And The Tempest opens at Redux.

Both Christian and Jewish pets can get blessed at Paws and Prayers. Buddhists are out of luck though.

Get a new garden at Hampton Park Plant Swap, but you'll have to bring some of your own to get new ones. 

You can spend a day sweeping up Shem Creek via kayak, fishing on the Folly Beach fishing pier, learning about sea turtles on World Turtle Day, or getting dropped on the Bulls Island Beach Drop.

Yes, there will actually be cornbread at the Cornbread Nation Signing & Tasting.

Beers, Beats & Eats is pretty self explanatory. If you can't figure it out, there will be beer, beats, and eats.

And the First Flush Festival returns to the Charleston Tea Plantation. Feel free to drink your weight in the sweet stuff.
