Gullah Festival Returns to Beaufort This Weekend


By Alicia Barnes

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) _ This weekend, the Gullah Festival is returning to Beaufort for a 27th season.

The three-day festival opens on Friday and continues through Sunday in a new location - the Technical College of the Lowcountry. In past seasons, the festival was held in Beaufort's waterfront park.

The festival highlights the culture of slave descendants on South Carolina's sea islands. Events include a Gullah Village and, this year, a new children's village with games and play areas.

There will also be music, lectures and films about the culture.
