Saturday night will be televised so please make sure to tune in at 8 p.m. on WPDE Channel 15 to watch the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Pageant. These lovely young ladies have worked very hard to prepare for this pageant. They have done countless hours of volunteering and raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals all while sharing their personal platforms, practiced their talents while making lots of appearances, attending school and maintaining high GPA’s to qualify plus a mountain full of paperwork and essays.

Thank you for your support and please tune in Saturday night to see the final night of the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Pageant.

Plans for the 38th Annual Loris Bog-Off Festival are underway. We are proud to announce that Silk Groove, an 11-piece Motown and Beach Music band featuring horns, bass, keyboards, guitar and of course Chris on drums along with a strong five man front line of vocalist will be performing at this year’s festival. Also, the Brandon Bailey Band will end the night. They are a Country/Southern Rock Band from Evergreen, N.C. Brandon has known since the age of 6 that playing music was his calling. Brandon and his band have pleased crowds in Nashville, the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida. They have performed at the World Renowned House of Blues, Hard Rock Cafe and various major Nashville hot spots. Brandon and the band’s shows are rocking, spirited and energetic, combing today’s hottest Country Music hits with high-powered Southern Rock and Classic Rock favorites, as well as some Classic Country hits from Hank Williams, Jr. and others. Not to mention the awesome originals that have all of Nashville talking.

Brandon was the winner of Nashville’s coveted American Country Star and the 2015 Reverberation Battle of the Bands where he opened for Eric Church at the Carolina Country Music Fest in Myrtle Beach.

Make plans to join us for the 38th Annual Loris Bog-Off Festival Saturday, Oct. 21.
