The 2018 Event

The City has asked that we notify everyone that the Parade has been canceled by the City at 1630 on December 7th in the interest of safety for decorated  boaters and our working boats. It will not be rescheduled, because of permit problems (the harbor needs to be closed for the event).

Notice from the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission: “Due to the impending weather forecast for this coming Saturday (12/8), we have decided to reschedule Shuckin’ on the Cooper to January 12, 2019.”
