Paws N' Claus on Nov. 19

This holiday season, the Charleston Parks Conservancy and Pet Helpers invite you to join a one-of-a-kind celebration that captures the spirit of community, companionship, and the joy that pets bring to our lives. On November 19, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the Rose Pavilion in Hampton Park will transform into a festive backdrop for the first-ever Paws N' Claus event, where you and your furry friend can create cherished memories.

Secure your special holiday photo session for just $15 by reserving in advance. This ensures that you won't miss the opportunity to capture these treasured moments. We also welcome walk-up attendees, so if you decide at the last minute to join the festivities, you're welcome to participate.

The Conservancy is partnering with Pet Helpers because both organizations believe that community spaces should be enjoyed by everyone, including those with four-legged companions. The partnership is rooted in the shared commitment to fostering a thriving and interconnected community, promoting responsible pet ownership while advocating for the well-being of animals.


Free and Festive Community Event on Dec. 1

Colonial Lake will be transformed into a glowing winter wonderland as Charleston Parks Conservancy announces the return of its much-anticipated holiday event, "Light the Lake," on December 1 at Colonial Lake from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. This free, family-friendly gathering includes a whimsical "snowfall" experience, food village, wine bar, beer garden, photo booth sponsored by Publix, and live music and performances featuring a special presentation of "ANIMALIA" by Hobey Ford. Colonial Lake’s pathways will be lined with more than 1,000 luminaries and will include the lighting of the tree in the center of the Lake by Charleston’s Mayor at 5:45 p.m.

The community is invited to honor and celebrate special people in their lives by dedicating a luminary for a $35 donation which will be displayed on the 40-foot big screen, courtesy of Fox Audio Visual, before the movie begins at 7 p.m. These luminaries honor children, friends, family members, or even pets. Additionally, people can choose to memorialize a loved one. While registration is not required, it is recommended.

The best part is that all proceeds from the sale of Charleston Park Conservancy's luminaries ensure that the nonprofit organization can continue to offer free programs for the community. These programs engage people of all ages and backgrounds, fostering a sense of community and belonging. Community members come together, connect with one another, and build relationships through shared experiences in the parks. Thank you for making an impact in our community by being a champion of our parks.
