Update March 29:

We had a chance to make it out to the 19th Annual Lowcountry Cajun Festival on Sunday afternoon and snapped some photos of all of the fun before the rains came.

Grills were raging, crawfish were selling like hot cakes, and everyone was having a blast at one of the best annual festivals held by the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission. Take a peek at the slideshow below and feast your eyes on some Creole culture.

First reporting:
