This weekend the Ravenel Bridge celebrates its 10th anniversary. This beautiful structure has become an iconic symbol of Charleston and the Lowcountry — and the home daily to drivers, bikers, runners and walkers. The view is spectacular — the harbor, barrier islands, rivers, the Atlantic Ocean and, of course, downtown Charleston.
To help celebrate, courtesy of the Post & Courier (the local newspaper), a 25 foot model of the bridge will be created with Lego bricks at Patriots Point on the lawn in front of the aircraft carrier Yorktown. Not only can you watch the bridge take shape, there will be music, food, kids activities and more. To make it easy to go, there will be a free parking pass printed in the newspaper every day this week (parking is $5.00 without the coupon). The pass also reduces the price of admission to the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum by $10.00.
The event will take place from 2:00 to 7:00 on Saturday, July 18th and 12:00 to 5:00 on Sunday, July 19th.
Patriots Point is located at 40 Patriots Point Road in Mt. Pleasant.
