Hootie Monument Coming to 5 Points

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) – It’s no secret that Columbia loves Hootie and the Blowfish, and next month there will be a permanent reminder.

On October 21, the Five Points Association will unveil a monument to the band who gained fame in Columbia in the early ’90s.

In addition to the monument, Santee Avenue will be honorarily renamed Hootie Boulevard, and a tribute concert will be held that evening.
