Memorial Day Weekend Events Coming To The Upstate
From Seneca to Mauldin, the Upstate will have plenty of things going on this weekend.
Whether you're into bicycle races or music, the Upstate will have plenty of options for you this Memorial Day weekend.
If you're a cycling fan, you can check out the USA Cycling Championships. At 11:30 a.m. Saturday, time trials begin at CU-ICAR. On Memorial Day (Monday), the Road Race Championship, a 115-mile race that winds from downtown Greenville, through the Furman University area and down through Taylors before returning to Greenville, will begin at noon. The race is free to attend.
If music is more your speed, perhaps you could trek over to Oconee County. Seneca Fest will feature bluegrass music beginning at 11 a.m. at Norton-Thompson Park in Seneca, and the featured musical act Little River Band will finish things up at 8 p.m.
