Come-See-Me Festival

Rock Hill's annual salute to spring, the Come-See-Me Festival,
runs Thursday, April 16 through Saturday, April 25

ROCK HILL, S.C. – With a nod to its long history and current day "Throwback Thursday," this year's Come-See-Me Festival opens with the "Remember When" Parade on opening night. Recently named South Carolina Event of the Year, this year's Festival offers its consistently fun and family-friendly events.

Music lovers may enjoy several venues and 16 musical acts, including opening weekend's Beach Bash to weekday lunch concerts at Glencairn Garden, to Moonlight Jazz & Blues beside Winthrop Lake, and the ever-popular giant Tailgate Party with headliner Crashbox. The festival finale is the fabulous Fireworks Extravaganza following the tailgate.

For kids, there's a kazoo parade at Musical Mania and a chance to display artistic skill at Chalk on Main, as well as competing in the Coloring Contest. Families can enjoy delicious ice cream at Sundaes with Glen and Mother Goose, frolic at the Teddy Bear Tea Party, and compete to see who has the fastest frog at the Mayor's Frog Jump. Kids can take check out an assortment of extra large vehicles at Everything Trucks! And learn bike safety and health tips at Healthy Kids Zone.
