WindMark Beach Music Festival draws a crowd

Gathered on lawn chairs and picnic blankets, about 100 eager listeners turned out for the first ever WindMark Beach Music Festival on Saturday under sunny late summer skies.

The weather was a welcome change from the week prior, when heavy thunderstorms postponed the festival’s original date.

The event featured performanced from four artists — Mark Owens, Weston T. Hine and the Palmettos, the Hunter Wall Band, and the Ranch Hands. The Krickets, who had initially been slated to play the festival, were unable to make it for the rain date.

Festival-goers enjoyed cold beer, food from local establishments and a good time outdoors with friends and neighbors.
