After over a year of major renovations led by the Charleston Parks Conservancy, Colonial Lake is back open and lookin’ good. On Saturday guests and neighbors are invited to a formal ribbon cutting and an afternoon of activities that include a scavenger hunt, hopscotch, jump roping, and plein air painting demos. Mayor John Tecklenburg is set to cut the ribbon at 11 a.m. and there will be Conservancy volunteers leading several horticulture tours of the park’s new gardens. Dr. Nic Butler, a historian at the Charleston Public Library, will give a speech on the Lake’s long history in our town. Take a walk and grab a snack from food trucks like, Short Grain, King of Pops, or Sweet Lulu’s, all while enjoying live music by John Cusatis and some festive model sailboat racing.
