Make plans now to be Aloft this Memorial Day weekend
Every once in a while, I like to post some of the events that are unique to our area so that people thinking about moving here get a taste of our area and the lifestyle here.
The Aloft Festival has become a local tradition and is returning this year. Simpsonville’s Heritage Park will be the location for three days of music, family May 23-26. The expected over 200,000 attendees will enjoy music from the likes of Hot Chelle Rae, Thompson Square, and Blues Traveler. The festival combines great food, good music and scores of hot air balloons in a one of a kind Memorial Day experience.
Freedom Weekend Aloft (now re-branded as Aloft) started at Donaldson Center in 1982 before moving to Anderson and then to Simpsonville in 2007. You can find out more at Aloft.org. This year, the goal is to attract even more people from neighboring states, includes a outdoor activities including ziplines, stand up paddle boarding, helicopter rides and beer and wine tasting. Literally there is something fun for almost everyone to do. If you have never experienced it before, make your plans now to enjoy Memorial Day weekend a whole new way.
