CarolinaFest 2017

CarolinaFest 2017

Date Details: May 30 - June 4 — 8:00 am - 10:00 pm

Registration: Required

I don't know about you guys, but I am getting pumped for this event. Communication is super important to us, and so, we figured we should communicate some very important things regarding this event with you! I'm talking about waivers, entertainment, the raffle, the aircraft schedule, and the LO schedule.

WAIVERS

You cannot check in at registration until you have a current waiver on file. You may wonder, how can I do this and avoid standing in the blazing hot carolina sun with a tablet praying the internet connection holds up while I watch all my friends (who did complete the waiver prior to arriving) having the raddest skydives of their lives!? Well, lucky for you friends, I have the answer.

Use this link, and get it done ahead of time!

Really though, save yourself the hassle!

Entertainment

?Now, we all know you know how to keep yourselves busy after hours, but we figured we would lend you a helping hand with some scheduled entertainment!

TUESDAY NIGHT

Join us under the big top for some old fashioned fun, and try your hand at several carnival game favorites, score some points, and maybe win a tintype photograph for Saturday.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT

Once again, the talented Matt Tucker will join us to sooth our most likely sunburned skydiver hearts with some sweet cooling tunes. http://www.matttuckermusic.com

THURSDAY NIGHT

Get a few drinks in you and get your wind pipes ready, come blow us away with your favorite rendition of Heart or whatever band strikes your fancy! What I'm trying to say is, we will have karaoke.

FRIDAY NIGHT

If you're faint of heart this might not be for you, we have Black Cat Sideshow coming to make our stomachs curl. Get ready for fire-breathing, sword swallowing, and an overall feral time.

SATURDAY NIGHT

LETS GET WEIRD with a Freakshow Costume party and take it over the top under the big top. We will have 10 tintype photographs up for grabs through games on carnival night, as well as random giveaways, and one for the BEST costume.

In case you don't know how cool a tintype is, here are some examples by thephotographer who will be joining us!
