Expect most bars and restaurants around the Bridge Run finish line to open on Saturday morning around 10 a.m. You'll find plenty of places to party on the route, or you could head away from the big crowds to more outlying areas to find even more parties. Expect Charleston to take advantage of the early start by partying all day long. The official After Race Festival happens right at the finish line in Marion Square with live entertainment, food and drink available.
