Weekend Happenings: September 23-24


(WSPA)— It’s time for the 6th Annual Mauldin Barbeque Cook-Off! It kicks off tonight from 6 to 9PM with the “anything butt competition.” It continues tomorrow from 11AM until 3. Admission is free but you’ll definitely want to bring money for tasting tickets. They’ll have about 20 cooks from all over the southeast competing for prizes. The festival focuses on the BBQ, but there will be live music and a kid’s zone as well. That’s held at the Mauldin Cultural Center: 101 East Butler Road, Mauldin SC.

Race for the Cure returns to the upstate this weekend. Run or walk tomorrow morning at 10 at Heritage Park in Simpsonville. The morning begins with a survivor breakfast at 7:45 and they’ll start lining people up for the race at 9:30. Make sure you hang around afterward…They’ll have a concert and food trucks. Head out and help raise money for one of the world’s largest fundraising events for breast cancer. To donate visit: http://scmountainstomidlands.info-komen.org/site/TR?fr_id=6440&pg=entry
