Mexico has Cinco de Mayo; Kentucky has the Derby, but on May 5th, Charlestonians in the know will be celebrating Spoleto Saturday -- the day to save on selected Spoleto Festival USA events.

The much-anticipated annual event takes place at the Gaillard Municipal Auditorium at 77 Calhoun Street from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
