The upstate is pretty much home. I wasn't born here, but the family moved to Greenville 40 years ago when Dad took a job in the textile business. Went to J. L. Mann High, then saw my daughter graduate from the same school. I started in the radio business after one semester of college, which I found out was too hard. (College, not this!) I was lucky to get started here at WESC 30 years ago, and haven't found anything else I really wanted to do more. And I like the things we have on WESC ... I do like country music, I do like racing, I just don't like getting up at 3 am.
I offered a few suggestions for weekend fun this morning on WESC, if you’re looking for a good time this weekend, here they are!
Belton’s Standpipe Festival is 10 – 10 Saturday on
Oktoberfest, noon - 10 in Downtown Greer. German food and beer, artists and dancing, and you don’t even have to wear lederhosen! www.greeroktoberfest.com
Denver Downs Farm. Corn maze, pumpkin patch, farm tours and hay rides to name a few things. Your kids will love it! www.denverdownsfarm.com
Textile Heritage Weekend, Upcountry History Museum. downtown Greenville. This years theme is Railroad Ties to the textile industry. Several excellent exhibits about the industry that built our area.
