We weren’t able to give it much love in the paper this week, what with all the Best of Charleston stuff and all, but you really should check out the Receiver Time-Based Media Festival. It’s an awesome event if you’re into performance art, kinetic sculptures, video art, and more, and it’s completely free.
Take the kids to the Kids Fair. It’s got their name written all over it.
You’ll bloom at the Breath of Spring Flower Show at Cypress Gardens. It’s got a “Magic of the Movies” theme.
Break out that Love Bug and get in on the Charleston Road Rally.
Support local college artists at the Battle of the Brushes.
St. Patrick’s Day comes early at the St. Paddy’s Day Block Party and Parade in Park Circle and at the Folly Beach Pub Crawl. Technically you shouldn’t get pinched, but better wear green just to be safe.
The Carolina Challenge Cup finishes up at Blackbaud Stadium. There’s also the Palmetto Pump and USA Climbing Competition, the Spring into Bocce Beach Bocce Tournament, and the Killer 3 Mountain Bike Race.
The Charleston Firefighter Hockey Team will play the Boston Fire Department Hockey Team, while the Stingrays have a game against the Cincinnati Cyclones. Or maybe your puppy is an aspiring Kristi Yamaguchi? Check out Paws and Claws on Ice.
Murder By Death performs with Fake Problems, and Bubba Sparxxx will be at Thee Southern Belle.
Pushing the Elephant, about 2009 U.N. Humanitarian of the Year Rose Mapendo, will be screened by the Charleston Library Society.
And a women gets lost in translation (sorry, I still have Bill Murray references on the brain) in Fear and Trembling (Stupeur et Tremblements).
