Bobber race brings excitement to Freedom Celebration activities
The Palmetto Business Association, The Town Of Williamston, and Envision Williamston, in cooperation with local businesses, are sponsoring a fun summer event called “Bobbers on Big Creek” that will be held in conjunction with the town’s Freedom Celebration on Saturday, June 29. The event includes  a “bobber race” in Big Creek with fun and cash prizes for the top three winners. Starting this week, when visiting participating local businesses, a special “Bobber Sticker” will be available to shoppers who spend $10 or more. The “Bobber Stickers” will be used for registration for a numbered bobber to enter into the race. The more you shop, the more stickers you can receive. Bobber race registration will begin at 3 p.m. under the Main St. bridge over the creek. A registration table will be set up along Mineral Spring Trail which passes under the bridge.  The start line for the Bobber Race will be under the Main Street Bridge and the finish line will be in the Veterans Park.  The race will begin at 4 and you must be present to win.
Participating businesses include Kenneth Rhodes and Associates insurance, Williamston Eye Care Center, McDonalds of Williamston, Ace Hardware, Cox and Cole Attorneys, The Journal, Palmetto Properties, Ms. B’s Hotdogs, Best Cash Loans, Family Vision, Upstate Federal Credit Union, Fiesta Mexican Restaurant, House of Pizza, The Dog House, Panda Cafe, B&R Restaurant, MVPizza, Fast Fuel and The Clock.
Visit any or all of the participating businesses to get your bobber stickers and bring it to enter a bobber in the race Saturday afternoon. Come enjoy the fun as hundreds of bobbers make their way down Big Creek, then stick around for music and fireworks in downtown Williamston.
