FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCBD) – Folly Beach is gearing up to welcome in the new year with a flip flop drop and Bill Murray look-a-like polar plunge.
The annual tradition of the flip flop drop has ushered in the new year at Folly Beach since 2011. A giant pair of sparkling flip flops will descend from high above Center Street as a crowd of celebrators count down to the new year on Saturday, December 31st.
Crews with Folly Beach Public Safety were practicing for the big event on Wednesday.
“The crowds, they keep coming to the Flip Flop Drop- they normally stop off at the business establishments and get revved up as we get closer to about 11 o’clock or so. The crowds begin building up around the ladder truck in anticipation of the flip flop drop,” said Deputy Director Rocky Burke with Folly Beach Public Safety.
There will also be a Bill Murray look-a-like polar plunge that happens on New Year’s Day. Participants are encouraged to dress in their best Bill Murray costume before jumping into the cold Atlantic Ocean in front of the Tides hotel.
“A lot of brave souls come out for that and jump in that cold water,” said Burke. “You know, on January 1, dressed in bikinis and things of that nature and a lot less clothing, braver than me.”
And of course you can always enjoy the brand new Folly Beach Pier which opened on the day after Christmas. A lot of people are already taking advantage of what is once again another beautiful place to spend some time enjoying Folly Beach.
“We just want people to come have a good time. Spend your money, have a good time and do it in moderation- be safe about what you’re doing and enjoying the flip flop drop,” Burke said.
Festivities for the Flip Flop Drop start at 11:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve with the drop happening at midnight. Meanwhile, the Bill Murray costume contest takes place New Year’s Day at 10:00 a.m., following by the plunge at 11:00 a.m., and a party at the Tides hotel at noon.

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCIV) — You won't be hearing the sounds of turtles splashing their way to the ocean yet from Folly Beach and surrounding sea turtle hot spots.
But efforts continue to make sure when sea turtle season kicks off on May 1st that the creatures' path to a long life is as clear as can be.
It’s pretty darn critical. We’re constantly, every season dealing with disorientations with the turtles. Where they get distracted by the lighting on the beachfront," said Eric Lutz, the City of Folly Beach's Director of Public Works.
Lutz says the City's ordinance 151.45 deals directly with artificial nighttime lighting coming from properties right off the beach.
That lighting can impact a hatchling's travels during hatching season.
City officials and marine biologists say the light draws the turtles toward that source instead of following the horizon and straight into the Atlantic Ocean.
According to Lutz, “we’ve seen tracks of 40 and 50 turtles heading the wrong way, not towards the ocean, dead turtles on the beach the next morning. It happens more often than people would think.”
The City's Business License Official, Stacee Ritche said, “We have a very active turtle season here....Mothers are 30 years old before they can come to nest. And if there are lights on or you know, noise or holes or anything that, that could hamper them nesting they will turn around and go back to the ocean.”
Both Lutz and Ritchie say they want enforcement of the ordinance to include warnings and education about what needs to be done instead of just giving out fines.
The rules impact homeowners, property owners, property managers and renters.
Ritchie says, "the guests can receive a citation. The property manager can receive a citation, as well as the owner.”
According to Ritchie at least five violations led to convictions in court last year. Those convictions came with a $500 fine.
However, Ritchie says all of those convicted have fixed up their homes to comply. And many more warnings were given.
Lutz tells us it's not necessarily locals who violate the ordinance, "in fact the majority of our issues most years tend to be with the rental properties because they have new guests coming in every week that don’t know the rules. They may not be from the coastal areas.”
Lutz and Ritchie say it's up to the owner or manager of the property to inform any guests about the rules of the beach.
Some of the injured turtles find their way to the South Carolina Aquarium.
Cait Crosby, the Senior Sea Turtle Biologist tells us, "any sea turtle that is found on our coastlines or in our waterways is brought to us the by the South Carolina Department of Resources Marine turtle program."
Crosby says it's important to keep turtle movement during the night free of artificial factors if possible.
Crosby and the Folly Beach officials say compliance can start now, months away from May and there are tips to handle the situation while walking the beach this Summer.
"If you're going to be out on a beach, a sea turtle nesting beach specifically, you want to have a red flashlight. with you if you can. Or a red filter on your cellphone," says Crosby.
Meanwhile Lutz has several tips that should be followed to get your property ready:
"After 10 pm during turtle season they have to have lights out or they have options for shading on the interior of the windows, blinds. They make special blinds you can use to black it out, or you can actually switch to low wattage bulbs, similar to like a bug type bulb.”

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - A date has been set for Folly Beach residents to vote on whether or not the city will limit investment short term rental licenses.
This comes after a citizen petition to cap short term rental licenses at 800 units, which represents about one third of the island.
After verifying the signatures, the city decided not to outright adopt the petition, but to put it to an island-wide vote.
Now residents are preparing to cast their ballots. The special election will be Feb. 7, 2023. The election is at-large and by majority. Permanent residents, or people whose primary address is on Folly Beach can vote. Voters must be registered by Jan. 8th to participate.
Ann Peets, a nearly decade long Folly resident, has been actively following the petition.
“Basically it’s every single-family homeowner with 4% tax status. Any condominium owner or any long-term renter whose primary residence is Folly Beach can vote,” Peets says.
The following precincts will be able to participate: Folly Beach 1, Folly Beach 2, James Island 1A, and James Island 1B. Polling will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Baptist Fellowship Hall (61 West Indian Folly Beach) on the day of the election.
Peets signed the original petition for a cap and plans to vote in favor of the cap. She says it’s important that every resident is prepared to vote and knows how the petition will affect them and Folly as a whole.
“For any information or answers or frequently asked questions as you’re getting ready to vote, we encourage you to check the Folly Beach Residents Facebook page, where we post all the facts and frequently asked questions,” Peets says.
If you cannot vote in person on Feb. 7 in the special election, you can vote early or absentee. Early voting is from Jan. 23 – Feb. 3 of 2023. Early voting hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the Charleston County Board of Elections office (4367 Headquarters Rd. North Charleston, SC 29405). To learn how to absentee vote you can reach out to the Charleston County Board of Elections at 843-744-8683.
On behalf of those who signed the original petition, Peets says she is looking forward to the vote.
“We feel like we had a really good, high number of people turn out for the petition to really share their views. And we just hope that everybody remembers that to take it all the way through. They’ve got to go to this referendum and cast their ballot. But we are feeling very positive. We feel like there’s a lot of groundswell around making sure that Folly stays Folly and stays funky and family and livable, and basically that we can strike a balance with the investors on the island so that everybody can kind of keep things in a nice balance between us,” Peets says.

Blue Point’s Corey Beach and Huntington’s downtown are the setting of a few scenes in Netflix’s new limited series “Kaleidoscope.”
The nine-episode heist drama was released on Jan. 1, with a unique twist. The show allows its viewers to pick any order to watch the episodes. There’s over 40,000 ways to watch the series.
“Kaleidoscope” features critically claimed actor Giancarlo Esposito, who is best known for his work as villain Gus Fring in the show “Breaking Bad” and its prequel, “Better Call Saul.” Along with Esposito, the series stars Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney and Niousha Noor.
The plot revolves around the story of $70 billion dollars in bonds that go missing in downtown Manhattan amidst Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Originally called “Jigsaw,” the production for the limited series began filming in early 2022 on Long Island. Camera crews were spotted at Corey Beach and a Huntington pawn shop in January. Patchogue Village officials said filming also took place by Lombardi’s on the Bay in Patchogue. Other scenes were filmed in Brooklyn and Manhattan, per The Tab.
The beach setting filmed on Long Island is being used to depict Folly Beach in South Carolina in the fictional series. Here is the Corey Beach sign covered up for the show:
“While it gets too caught up in the gimmick of the structure-changes for each viewer, the performances are great, and the tension is built up well,” writes film critic Austin Burke. “There is excitement within this heist, but it doesn’t fully come together.”
Watch the trailer below.

Charleston, South Carolina has been making 'best of' travel headlines for years now with no signs of losing steam. This charming historic city packs an unbelievable punch for its small size. From the meticulously preserved antebellum architecture to world-class culinary offerings, a thriving arts scene, historical significance, and its array of beautiful beaches, there is no shortage of amazing things to do in Charleston.
Charleston is a thriving year-round destination, but with its oppressive heat during the summer, now is an excellent time to think about a Charleston getaway. The off-season enjoys much lighter crowds while temperatures remain fairly mild, and prices and availability are more favorable to visitors as well. Whether a seasoned vet or a Charleston first-timer, here are some great activities to enjoy in the Holy City.
Oyster season in Charleston opens annually on October 1st (when shellfish harvesting is permitted) and runs until the spring. The steadfast rule has always been that oysters are best enjoyed during the 'r' months, so winter is the best time to sample the local oysters that Charleston is famous for.
While there is certainly no shortage of options for oyster consumption in Charleston, head to an oyster roast for an authentically-Charleston experience. Fresh oysters are steamed over hot coals and served family-style at large, communal tables where guests then shuck their own oysters and eat them with saltines, lemon, and hot sauce.
Charleston's Boone Hall Plantation holds the largest oyster festival in the world every January, but small-scale roasts pop up constantly and almost everywhere, from breweries to parks to bars and backyards.
Charleston is surrounded by a series of barrier islands and each of these nearby beach communities has its own unique vibe. Folly Beach has the most eclectic personality of all the Charleston beaches thanks to its vibrant local community and unpretentious atmosphere.
Located only a few miles from downtown Charleston, it is easy to incorporate into the daily itinerary, although one could easily choose to base themselves in Folly Beach instead.
With some of the best waves in the southeast, surfers have long flocked to Folly Beach. Advanced surfers will find the most optimal conditions at the area known as the Washout, but novices can take a surfing lesson with one of the island's reputable schools.
Wetsuits are provided with the cost of lessons during the cooler months conditions are often better than in the summer, too.
Historic downtown Charleston has a longstanding reputation as a retail shopping hub. The peninsula's most iconic shopping area is the picturesque and palmetto-lined King Street. Here shoppers will find popular international brands, unique local boutiques, furniture and home decor stores, a slew of art galleries, and many antiques and collectibles shops too.
Also found on King Street is The Shops at Charleston Place, home to high-end retailers like Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
The historic Charleston City Market is another must-visit downtown shopping attraction (open daily from 9:30 am - 6 pm). On Friday and Saturday nights, it comes to life as a night market too. All the night market artists are selected via an application process for their local and handmade works.
With so much water surrounding Charleston, a sailboat is a great way to explore the city from a different perspective.
Hourly and daily yacht charters are available at any of the area marinas, and sailing courses are also available through Charleston Sailing School for anyone wishing to acquire their own set of skills on the water.
The colorful homes along the Charleston Battery make for excellent sightseeing from within the Charleston Harbor. Check out some of the uninhabited barrier islands, such as Capers Island, that are only accessible by boat.
Another fun sailing option is to 'dock and dine'; sail over to Isle of Palms or Sullivan's Island and drop anchor at one of the lively waterfront establishments.
Head over to Anson Street (next to the historic City Market) to be greeted by a slew of friendly faces of the equine variety. Learn the history of Charleston while perched atop a horse-drawn carriage and enjoy the sights of the city.
The tour guides are certified by the city and are extremely knowledgeable. Visitors will learn new facts with every tour they go on, and explore different areas of downtown as well. The barns are open to the public and patrons and welcome to visit with the gentle giants.
An important note for animal lovers: the carriage companies have large farms outside the city and rotate different horses in and out of pasture each week (they do not live downtown, or work every day). The industry is closely regulated (number of daily tours, cooling times, body temps, etc.), and draft horses and bred and built for this sort of work.
The carriage horses are all former Amish plow horses. Not only is their new job far more humane, but it also saves them from an otherwise unspeakable fate.
It's no secret that Charleston's food and beverage scene is world-class. The city has long been a food haven, with drinking and dining a staple of any Charleston vacation.
There is an incredible array of options to suit all tastes and budgets, boasting everything from Michelin-star and James Beard award chefs and restaurants to humble soul food and gritty dive bars. Be sure to come hungry (and thirsty)!
While this entire article could be devoted to the culinary offerings in Charleston, here are a few tried-and-true favorites broken down into four categories.
Charleston has a wonderful music scene, with numerous venues that consistently welcome both emerging artists and famous headliners. Many of the downtown venues are small, allowing for intimate shows where attendees can get up close and personal with the musicians and sometimes even share a drink with them at the bar.
Check out the Music Farm and Charleston Pour House for laid-back vibes and music spanning a variety of genres. The Galliard Center and Charleston Music Hall are elegant venues with incredible acoustics.
For large-scale concerts, there is also the North Charleston Coliseum and Credit One Stadium, which can each host over 10,000 patrons.
Additionally, Charleston is home to some excellent outdoor venues including the Windjammer, Charleston Harbor Resort at Patriot's Point, The Refinery, and Riverfront Park that host many fun shows and festivals in the warmer months.
Anyone visiting Charleston during baseball season (April - October) should be sure to catch a Charleston RiverDogs game. Recently named the Minor League Baseball Team of the Year, the team is co-owned by local celebrity Bill Murray who often pops up at home games.
The stadium is conveniently located downtown and the games offer cheap beer and tons of fun in a family-friendly atmosphere. The games are loved by locals and tourists alike, and everyone is sure to have a great time.
The Charleston RiverDogs also host frequent special events to contribute to the community, from litter clean-ups to animal fundraisers, as well as cultural heritage celebrations, golf events, food festivals, and more.
Charleston is home to over 30 breweries, where locals and tourists mingle side by side. The beer scene has grown rapidly over the last decade, with only three breweries in Charleston 10 years ago.
Beer enthusiasts will find a diverse range of offerings, encompassing lagers to stouts to IPAs and everything in between. Some of the Charleston breweries offer full-service dining, while others just have food trucks on-site during certain hours.
With so many breweries to choose from, below are a handful of the favorites to visit, according to locals. Remember not to drink and drive; if no designated driver is available opt for a guided tour with transportation instead.
The Ravenel Bridge is becoming to Charleston what the Golden Gate Bridge is to San Francisco. Besides connecting the Charleston peninsula with neighboring Mount Pleasant, crossing the Ravenel Bridge is also a popular recreational activity for locals and tourists alike.
Don't forget to take a few snaps because the views of Charleston Harbor are out of this world!
The Ravenel Bridge features a designated pedestrian lane with a safety barrier from traffic, and it is wide enough to comfortably accommodate both walkers and bikers. The bridge spans 2.5 miles from one end to the other, so keep in mind it is a 5-mile roundtrip journey.
Rather than going back and forth, another great option is to head over to the waterfront bars on Shem Creek and then use Uber or Lyft to return to the peninsula.
