Posted 8/2/2013 8:06:00 PM

August is a great time to sit in the shade and drink iced tea, but there are still a few great food events you won’t want to miss. 

Aug. 8-10: South Carolina Peanut Party, Pelion. Eat your fill of boiled peanuts and enjoy amusement rides, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich eating contest, a parade and more.

Aug. 10: Storks and Corks, Silver Bluff Audubon Center, Jackson. Here’s your chance to see endangered wood storks in their natural setting while enjoying food and wine. Jackson is near Aiken.

Aug. 30-Sept. 1: Beach, Boogie and BBQ, at The Market Common in Myrtle Beach. This is a Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned competition paired with lots of entertainment.
