Oct 4 @ 7:05 pm
Bon Secours Wellness Arena

Greenville Swamp Rabbits     vs.  Savannah Ghost Pirates

The Greenville Swamp Rabbits are much more than a professional hockey franchise playing in Upstate South Carolina; it is truly Greenville’s hockey team. Formerly known as the Road Warriors, the club rebranded to the Swamp Rabbits on August 26, 2015 in an effort to really ingrain itself in the fabric of the community. The name is inherently Greenville – specific to the city and unique in the sports world.

It’s the electrifying energy and unstoppable passion of Swamp Rabbits fans inside The Well combined with the award-winning game presentation that make attending a Swamp Rabbits game the BEST fan experience in the ECHL! From the moment you step inside the arena, you’ll find FREE concourse activities for the whole family, including sign-making, temporary tattoos, interactive games, music and there’s always a good chance you’ll run into the Swamp Rabbits mascot Stomper! Throughout the season, fans can also expect a lineup of special theme nights and exciting giveaways.

Hoops + Heels
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm
Bon Secours Wellness Arena

The 2nd annual Furman women’s basketball “Hoops & Heels” fundraising and women’s empowerment event is scheduled for Oct. 5 at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in downtown Greenville.

National and Olympic champion coaching great Dawn Staley is the featured speaker for the event, which gets underway with a VIP cocktail hour at 6:00 p.m., followed by the dinner and program beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Registration and multiple sponsorship and ticket opportunities are detailed HERE. 

“We are extremely excited to welcome National and Olympic Champion Dawn Staley as our speaker for this year’s “Hoops and Heels” event,” said Furman head coach Jackie Carson.  “The interest in women’s basketball, particularly in the state of South Carolina, is at an all-time high due to Dawn’s program at the University of South Carolina. She is not only an amazing leader on the court but personifies true servant leadership with her civic and community engagement across the country. Her words will empower all attendees, and we look forward to the Greenville and Furman communities joining us for a legendary evening.”

Fresh off a 2022 NCAA National Championship and a gold medal winning performance in the Tokyo Olympics as the head coach of the USA Women’s Basketball National Team, Staley is one of the most respected and successful coaches in the game of basketball. As a stand-out student-athlete at the University of Virginia and in the WNBA, she has exemplified greatness both on the court and the sidelines. Staley’s legacy on the basketball landscape was immortalized when she was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2013.

Carson ’00, who starred for Furman as a player over a brilliant four-year career, is entering her 13th year as head coach at her alma mater. The Paladins are coming off their most successful season in 22 years and competed in postseason play for the third time in four seasons.

South Carolina Aquarium Turtle Trek
Oct 15 @ 3:00 pm
Isle of Palms SC

The South Carolina Aquarium Turtle Trek 5K, a sunset beach run and kids fun run, will take place Saturday, October 15 at Isle of Palms County Park. Runners are also invited to participate in a beach litter sweep prior to the run after picking up race packets!

Your support helps us care for sick and injured sea turtles in the Sea Turtle Care Center™, with the goal of rehabilitating each patient so they can make the journey home.

About the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center

All seven species of sea turtles are listed as threatened or endangered, four of which are found in South Carolina: loggerhead, Kemp’s ridley, green and leatherback. To help ensure that sea turtles have a future in our oceans, our Care Center aids sick and injured sea turtles in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR).

At the South Carolina Aquarium, animal care is more than a job — it’s a calling to help ensure sea turtles have a future in our oceans. When a sea turtle is found stranded or injured, SCDNR brings the animal to the Sea Turtle Care Center for treatment. Sea turtles arrive at the Care Center suffering from a variety of ailments, including debilitated turtle syndrome, predation and boat strike wounds, injuries from accidental interactions with fishing gear and even exposure to dangerously low temperatures. Our staff veterinarians diagnose each turtle and work with Care Center staff and volunteers to provide treatments and rehabilitative care. Patients are given IV fluids, antibiotics, vitamins and other medications. Based on the sea turtle’s condition, a variety of procedures may be performed, such as x-rays, CT scans or ultrasounds. Rehabilitated sea turtles are released home in hopes that they will become reproductive members of the sea turtle population.

To date, we have rehabilitated and released more than 355 sea turtles back into their natural habitats. With your support, we can continue efforts to sustain these species into the next century and beyond.

The Mission of the South Carolina Aquarium

Our mission is to inspire conservation of the natural world by exhibiting and caring for animals, by excelling in education and research, and by providing an exceptional visitor experience.

The South Carolina Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Fall rafting contest with pumpkins

NOCtoberfest, NOC’s annual fall family fun event returns!

Enjoy leaf season in the Smoky Mountains at Nantahala Outdoor Center’s annual NOCtoberfest event on October 22nd, 2022.

This free, family favorite celebration offers activities, kid friendly live music, and prizes for all ages to enjoy.

The most anticipated part of the NOCtoberfest celebration is NOC’s Great Pumpkin Pursuit, a free for all dash through Nantahala Falls. Over 400 numbered pumpkins are tossed throughout the Nantahala’s grand finale rapid as paddlers frantically dash to collect as many of the bobbing pumpkins as possible. Contestants are welcome to bring their own boats, rent them on site, or stand along the riverbanks with a net. Registration is between Noon and 2:00 at NOC’s Big Wesser Riverside Pub. Prizes are awarded via raffle: more pumpkins equal more chances to win!

The Great Pumpkin Pursuit has become a popular spectator event. Up to 75+ paddlers hurtle through the Falls flip, swim, collide and bumble their way down the river there collecting pumpkins. Some spectators are asked to help distribute the pumpkins for the paddlers by tossing them in hard-to-reach places. The exciting event only takes minutes to play out, so spectators should plan on arriving early. The competitors meeting will be at 2pm, so paddlers should be going through the Falls at 2:30pm.

Other event highlights include:

  • Trick or treating across campus
  • 12-4pm Pumpkin Decorating: NOC supplies pumpkins, as well as decorating and kid friendly carving materials. Every child wins a prize after presenting their works of art to the judging panel.
  • 1pm Costume Contests: Dress to impress the judges! Costume categories are Kids, Couples, Most in
    Character and Scariest.
  • 3pm-6pm Live Music: Enjoy a bonfire and live music at Big Wesser. S’mores included!
  • Family Photo Fun with River the Otter, Fall scenery with the River as the backdrop, and more.
