After a wonderful time celebrating our 50th Chitlin Strut last November, we are planning events for our 51st on Saturday, November 26th, 2016.   

We are excited and hope that you make plans to join us.

New This Year!!  During our parade, we will have a golf cart competition for the best decorated Clemson & Carolina golf carts.  There is a $10.00 entry fee for this contest with $50.00 awarded to the best decorated Clemson and the best decorated Carolina golf carts.  Golf carts must be registered.  This is sponsored by Tampa Creek Farms.
