The Second Sunday of Every Month
Every month on the second Sunday, the City of Charleston helps us to shut down King Street (our Main Street) from Queen to Calhoun, roughly 1/2 mile, to through traffic and without parked cars, for five blissful hours. That gives us the whole street for people to walk around with big smiles, greet friends and neighbors, and enjoy Charleston as it would be on any old day without the traffic. The street closes to through traffic at noon and opens back up at 5:00 pm.
