2014 Winyah Bay Heritage Festival

Get your GIG on in Georgetown
Kids decoy painting is fun
The 2014 Winyah Bay Heritage Festival tested a new location, moving to historic Front Street near the setting of the horrific downtown fire in the fall of 2013. Organizers actually blocked off the street for patrons and vendors to spread out as needed, and it was an easy stroll to the waterway boardwalk that makes Georgetown so charming. The weather on Sunday was sunny and warm and may have been the best overall weather day since the inception of this festival with a rich history. Popular activities included the kids decoy painting station, saltwater fishing guide booths, the dock dogs competition and of course the homemade chicken bog and other local foods served up to customers. The 2014 S.C. State Duck Calling Contest was won by Blake Hodge. And Thomas Smoak of McClellanville was the 2014 featured artist and he was located in a vendor tent that included duck calls, vintage sporting accessories, taxidermy and more. New this year was the kayak race that supplied kayaks, paddles and everything needed for anyone willing to give the river a try. Good Idea!
