BridgesBlockParty-logoOn Saturday, April 5th, Bridges Preparatory School will host its first annual fundraising event, Bridges Block Party, featuring Beaufort’s only Shrimp & Grits Cook-off!

Families can stroll the marketplace shopping hand picked products from artisan vendors featuring home and kitchen goods. Kids of all ages can take a tour through the KID ZONE, full of hands-on interactive activities; corn shucking, shrimp peeling, grits touch and feel station and more. For the thrill seeker in the family, there will be a rock climbing wall, bungee jump and dunk tank! Just what every kid wants, to dunk their teacher or parent!

Bridges Block Party is open to the public with FREE admission. Attendees have the opportunity to purchase a Shrimp & Grits ballot for $15 which grants them entry into the judging tent and samples from each of the competitors. Additional Shrimp & Grits plates can be purchased from the chefs for $4 as part of the “People’s Choice” judging. Activity Tickets will be $1 per ticket with activities costing between 1 and 5 tickets each. Beer will be on site for adults to enjoy and local food vendors will present their best menu. Don’t worry, they’ll have something for the kids! Bridges PTO will be hosting its own food station with everybody’s homemade favorites! This event has something for everyone.
