There is free street parking available along Indian Ave and Huron Ave. Be sure that all four tires are off the road or behind the white line. Restrooms are available at the Folly Beach Community Center and Folly River Park. Participants should bring a water bottle, sunscreen, and bug spray if needed. We will meet at the rain garden in front of the Community Center.
