The Pageland Police Department and the Festival Committee will team up to provide parents with Kid Safety Kits from 3 – 5 pm. The carnival will host Family night on Friday with special savings. Enjoy the music as the sun goes down on this sweet rural town. Then, see one of South Carolina’s largest parades on Saturday morning. It will provide plenty of entertainment, laughter and fun for the family. Savor the delicious variety of foods as the beautiful wares of the crafters lure you. Our children will enjoy a variety of events throughout the day at the Children’s Stage located in Moore’s Park.
