Savvy Soiree brings showcase to Lake City

July 31, 2018

LAKE CITY, S.C. – Savvy Soiree is bringing its wedding and event showcase this weekend to Lake City.

The showcase is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at The R.O.B., and Visit Lake City SC Executive Director Seth Kines said this will be the first time the Southeast Wedding and Event Expo will be held outside of Florence.

“I know previously it has been at the Florence Center,” Kines said. “So we’re proud that they’re bringing this to Lake City. And we hope it becomes an annual event. We hope it becomes the first of many.”

Kines said Savvy Soiree’s wedding and event expo has traditionally attracted vendors from all over the state and Southeast region of the nation. Vendors, including photographers, caterers and wedding venue representives, are expected to be at the event.

Tickets for the Southeast Wedding and Event Expo can be purchased in advance and on the day of the event. Advanced tickets are available at savvysoireesc.com for $5. Tickets will be sold for $7 on the day of the showcase both online and at the door.

Sunday’s showcase adds to the list of new events being featured in Lake City. A gun and knife show and a model train show were recently featured at The R.O.B.

“So now, to have a wedding show, it really helps round out our calendar year,” Kines said. “We have Pee Dee Comic Con coming to Lake City the first weekend in October. So it’s good. It’s filling up our calendar with outside people bringing festivals and trade shows that normally happen in much larger areas in the state.”
