South Carolina Pelion Peanut Party

Farmers in Pelion, a mere 20 miles or so from Columbia, have been producing and harvesting peanuts for years. It has long been an autumn tradition for the townspeople to gather for the annual boiling of the peanuts. Today, members of the Pelion Ruritan Club continue the tradition at the annual Pelion Peanut Party. The Ruritans use a secret recipe for boiling the peanuts; however, they are more than happy to share the final product with festival-goers. This year’s festival features the Princess Pageant, craft show, parade, car show, military exhibits, peanut butter & jelly sandwich eating contest, frozen T-shirt contest, fabulous festival food, and amusement rides for all.
