Tons of outdoor fun for the fam

Freshfields Village is hosting a number of free events this weekend.

Last weekend’s weather was kind of spotty, so take advantage of the clearing skies (at least, that’s what the weatherman predicted) and get outside.

Whether you’re at the beach or enjoying one of the many Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto events around town, you’re sure to pick a winner. There are always options in the Holy City, that’s part of its charm.

Here are a few great options under $10.

Music on the Green This free, family-oriented concert series at Freshfields Village Green, at the crossroads of Johns, Seabrook and Kiawah islands, returns Friday.

From 6-9 p.m. every Friday through Aug. 31, enjoy the sounds of rock ’n’ roll, jazz, funk, beach music, country and more.

Friday’s performance will be by The Groove Train, which performs rock ’n’ roll, R&B and pop from the ’60s to today. Bring a beach chair or blanket and scout out your spot. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
