    SC Special hang event, Festival of Lights: the discussion

    something i really love and would love to share with you guys, is the Festival of lights. this thread is here to judge interest, and i need as much feedback as possible.

    Theres some work that im going to have to do to make this happen, but heres what im thinking:

    Where:
    James Island County Park http://www.ccprc.com/index.aspx?nid=68
    When: Nov 11-Jan 1
    What: Holiday Festival of Lights http://www.ccprc.com/index.aspx?nid=140

    This would be for all the family, theres a carousel, rock climbing wall (also a BIG one thats open daily with 4 sides and gear rentals) paddle boats, marshmallow roasting, santas workshop (gifts, food) kids train ride etc.

    its a beautiful event, one that i love and go to every year multiple times.

    NOW, for the hard part. The park has a hardline rule about hammocks or anything from trees, but im planning on talking to the park manager in the coming days.

    Second: were supposed to be back at camp by 5pm during the event, but since i want this to be based on the event, im going to see what i can do to pull this off. youd still have to drive thru the event because it is car based.

    Last, theres going to be park fees involved that may be up to you. at this point, all i know is theres camping fees and possibly the event fee

    When I talk to the manager, if we can get past the hammock thing and then figure a way to do the thing as a package deal per person, with any discounts per X amount of people if i can.

    anywho, let me see what i can do.

    We have always had a lot of fun staying on James Island. This would be a very neat hang. I doubt I could talk the wife into this one but I will definitely be watching this thread to see how it develops!

    You could always do a hammock stand city in the overflow area (the rv parking field to the extreme right of the campground). Tell ppl to bring their own portable stands. This area has no water and no electricity but it has enough room for more than a hundred people.
