Downtown Historic Georgetown came alive over the weekend of Jan. 15 & 16 while the 4th annual Winyah Bay Heritage Festival was celebrated. Sporting antique collectibles, pluff mud wear, duck calls, decoys and more were for sale at two separate venues with the State Duck Calling contest decided outdoors in the waterfront park. A great turnout was likely due to the sunshine and moderate temperatures.
