MOUNT PLEASANT NEWS & HAPPENINGS
Fourth of July Blast
The 4th of July Fireworks Blast is back this year! The night sky above the USS Yorktown will be full of red, white, and blue fireworks to celebrate American independence.

While Patriots Point is proud to announce the return of our biggest event, it will look a little different than the past. The most significant change – the celebration will be limited to the shore. There will not be a ticketed USS Yorktown Flight Deck option.
Reminder: 17th Annual Sweetgrass Festival on July 24
The annual Sweetgrass Festival in Mount Pleasant is designed to promote the contributions of the Gullah people’s history, culture, and traditions. Their sweetgrass basket art form originated in Mount Pleasant and continues to exist in our town and surrounding communities today. Save the date for this festival. Admission is free.

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT
Car Care and the Environment
Cars that aren’t maintained can leak fluids like oil, gas, and antifreeze onto paved surfaces. When it rains these pollutants get picked up by stormwater runoff and wash directly into our creeks. Regular vehicle maintenance keeps these chemicals out of our waterways and in your car where they belong. Learn what else you can do to help.
