CHARLESTON, SC (ADAM BRADLEY, WTAT-TV) — No shortage of fun events this weekend, so it was tough to narrow down the list but I’ve got something healthy and something tasty for you on today’s Weekend Wine Down.

This Saturday, dust off the Speedo and head to the Isle of Palms for the Holy City Swim Jam. The water is still nice and warm for this one where you can make a splash in support of your military veterans through Operation Restored Warrior. Compete in the 5k, 2-and-a-half mile or 1-mile beach swim and then enjoy some top-notch live music at The Windjammer! Triangle Bluegrass, Natty Grass Band and Simplified will all be on hand putting the “Jam” in the Swim Jam.

This next event is not the healthiest, but with Summer almost over, it’s time to start working on our “winter coat,” right?

The 2nd annual Southern Fried Chicken Challenge happens Saturday at Riverfront Park and I’d say the challenge is really just to not fill up on the first plate. You can be part of the judging process at this event with recipes from more than 20 local vendors. Last years inaugural event brought more than 1800 bird lovers and that number is sure to climb this year. Tickets are a mere 10-spot in advance and Leyla comes through yet again with the details tonight at 11pm on FOX 24 News Now.

Don’t forget to check out the Weekend Wine Down event every Saturday starting at 10am just down the road at Deep Water Vineyard as well! I’m Adam Bradley and those are the picks for this week’s Weekend Wine Down!
