Residents can enjoy a taste of the beach without the travel on Friday with the annual Summer Beach Blast.
The beach-themed concert will be held at Evans Towne Center Park.
“It is the kickoff to summer,” Columbia County Special Events Specialist Virginia Atkins said.
The Beach Blast features The Tams, Hack Bartley and Shuffle and headliner The Swingin’ Medallions.
“They are a Columbia County favorite,” Atkins said. “That’s why we keep bringing them back. ... They are such entertainers.”
