Friday’s at the Fountain not only features favorite local bands, praspic1_SCfood trucks, beverage sales, corn hole, lawn games, a dance floor and children’s activities but the event also features a chance to meet an adoptable furry friend from the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter. Fridays at the Fountain will also feature more animals for adoption at the events on July 22nd and July 29th.
