Floating Down the Saluda -
The West Metro Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with Palmetto Outdoors  Center, is planning a fun event as part of its Business After Hours monthly program. This event, scheduled for July 9, is a float down the Saluda & Congaree River in tubing supplied by Palmetto Outdoor. The first 50 chamber members should register at the chamber office which will begin at the West Columbia Amphitheatre. Floating down the Congaree & Saluda has become a very popular summer event with some folks coming from across the state to experience this fun activity. Typically, floaters are bused from the Amphitheatre to a point near the Riverbanks Zoo and exit the Congaree under the Gervais Street Bridge at the Amphitheatre. What a way to cool off in these FAMOUSLY HOT COLUMBIA days!
