Photos: Billboard battles lasers on banks of the Congaree
Last night hundreds gathered on the eastern banks of the Congaree to take in a laser light installation that will cris cross the river on a nightly basis come 2018. As night fell, the back deck at Edventure swarmed with crowds as the mayor spoke at an official ceremony of sorts. Sightseers explored the area, pointing fingers and regularly asking “Is that it?” wondering aloud if there were technical issues. When I passed local Tim Bedford on the bridge he pointed out a structure that was in the way.
Locals Jason and Mandy Reynolds came with her cousin Kelly and her daughter Ainsley who is excited to tell me about a time she found the big dipper, but that the little one had been elusive.
“We came down to visit the museum to see all the stuff in the planetarium and got to stay for the live concert from the Lovely Few. That was awesome,” says Jason Reynolds, “Really cool.”
“We happened to see what was going on out here and kinda stumbled upon it and said, we're going to come down and check it out. I heard they were doing a laser show out near the bridges but that was about it.” The Reynolds plan to watch Monday’s eclipse from the comforts of their own yard.
