Folly Beach is the place to be on July 4, 2012. The beach is great of course but there are two events that make this a unique time for us.
To start, Folly Beach visitors will once again enjoy something few others will a shoreline flyover provided by the United States Air Force.
The 79th Fighter Squadron “The Flying Tigers” of the 20th Fighter Wing will conduct the flyover with F-16s, and cover every beach on the South Carolina coast.
It’s worth noting the Tigers were the last out of Iraq, providing cover for troops on their way to Kuwait.
The Tigers are expected to reach Folly Beach at 1:20 pm on July 4th.
Join us ahead of time on the beach in patriotic colors with flag and camera in hand. Take pictures and upload them to the site here or to our facebook page here to share with those who can’t be with us.
Stick around after the Tigers pass. Vintage military aircraft will soon follow with military veterans aboard.
As usual, fireworks will be displayed on Folly Beach just after dark.
Grab a seat on the beach with the family and get ready for a great show. Watch our video here to get an idea of what to expect.
We hope everyone has a great 4th, remembering those who serve and have served this great nation!
