As though you somehow missed it, the Spoleto Festival USA has officially kicked off its 2011 season that runs until June 12 with, literally, a bit of thunder in the air. 

Here's a roundup of the highlights of day one (and the events):

- The Post and Courier was at the kickoff event with a nice profile of it and what the Spoleto and more family-oriented Piccolo Spoleto is all about; read that here.

- The Charleston City Paper has a report (and video) solely about the opening ceremonies; get that here.

- If you're still lost as to what to see or do, check out Charlie's top picks or get more oriented with our previous post.
