York County: “Come See Me” Flower Show & more!

It’s that time of year again — the annual “Come See Me” festival in Rock Hill! Ten days of “fabulous family fun,” through April 16. Events include the Catawba Native American Pow-Wow, Junior League’s Spring Market, zipline canopy tour, the frog hoppin’ contest, Quilts of York County display, pottery shows, live music, food and so much more!

Being a rabid gardener, I’m most looking forward to the “Come See Me Flower Show,” which will be Tuesday, April 12, from 4 to 7 p.m., and Wednesday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The FREE show will be at Glencairn Gardens, in The Bigger House, 725 Crest St. Floral designs, horticulture exhibits, vendors and more!

York County: Love bluegrass? Come see the Gibson Brothers tonight!

Are you a fan of bluegrass and Americana music? The Gibson Brothers are playing tonight, March 19, at the historic Sylvia Theater in downtown York, SC. The show starts at 9 p.m., with the awesome Will Mitchell with Stump Hole as the opening band!

A recent review: “Combining the high lonesome sounds of Bill and Charlie Monroe with the sweet harmonies of Phil and Don Everly, the Gibson Brothers are the best brother duo to hit bluegrass music in years – maybe decades.”
