Get scrambled in Lamar
Posted 3/18/2012 2:55:00 PM
South Carolina is entering prime festival season. And here's one with a name that grabbed our attention: The Lamar Egg Scramble Jamboree
We had to find out more.
The festival runs from April 4-7 (spring break week for many students), and it features a carnival, parade, classic car show, entertainment and vendors. It's all within walking distance on Railroad Avenue and Main Street in downtown Lamar, which is in Darlington County
in the Pee Dee region
of South Carolina. (Just off Interstate 20 at exits 131 or 123).
After the festival, take Main Street (it turns into Lee State Park Road) for about 9 miles and you'll arrive at Lee State Park
in nearby Bishopville
. The nearly 3,000-acre park features a bottomland hardwood forest and a mile of easy hiking trails. You also can drive to the banks of the Lynches River -- a great spot to fish, birdwatch or simply relax. It's a great place to spent a few hours in the outdoors.
