Greetings fellow Digitaliens, you've found the weekend round-up, and it's a real good one, promise.

First off, let's talk about how incredible this weekend's weather is supposed to be. The National Weather Service's forecast calls for clear skies and highs of 77 degrees Friday, 74 degrees on Saturday, and 79 degrees on Sunday.

Now, let's talk about ways carpe these diems.

On Friday evening, the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission is throwing a big old beach party on the Folly Beach Fishing Pier. This Moonlight Mixer is the last of the season, so don't miss out on this great chance to dance, drink and enjoy a beautiful evening on the ocean. On Saturday and Sunday, head out to Middleton Plantation and experience different aspects of Lowcountry plantation life during the Plantation Days celebration. The Susan G. Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure is one of the best reasons to get out and go for a run all year long - lace up and help save the ta-tas. 

There are 2.5 miles of new nature trails out at Wannamaker County Park and a climbing wall at the James Island County Park, why not hit those up?

More outdoor fun will come in the form of the the Paddle n' Party on Shem Creek. You can get all active by signing up for a guided kayak tour or the SUP 5K Race, or you can kick back, relax, and gobble up so oysters and beer. Another Sunday Funday outdoor event is the second annual India Fest that will be taking over Marion Square from noon to 5 p.m.  

Ted's Butcherblock is celebrating their fifth anniversary with a very meaty block party bash on Saturday afternoon. There is going to be a whole Cuban-style roast hog. Need I say more?

As for live music this weekend, Beats Antique will be at the Pour House on Friday night and Bone Thugs will be at the Music Farm. I'm not sure if you've heard, but Phish is playing two shows in Charleston this weekend too. I'm even less sure you knew that Elvis was coming to town.

We've got even more where these events came from on our handy Events Calendar. Check it out!
