The Party: On Saturday and Sunday, guests arrived early to Quarters H at Riverfront Park in North Charleston to chow down on a family-style brunch at Pass the Peas, an event benefitting The Green Heart Project which creates community farms and gardens that are integrated into public school classrooms. Diners were encouraged to mix and mingle at the long community tables decorated with floral arrangements. During Sunday’s seating, the chefs from Lewis Barbecue, Martha Lou’s Kitchen, and The Glass Onion dished out a three-course meal alongside wine pairings. Once everyone had their fill, attendees were lead to the Eternal Father of the Sea church where they got a private show from Shovels & Rope. Following the event, festivalgoers flocked to the main stages at High Water Festival to enjoy the many performances, including those by The Avett Brothers, Dawes, and of course, more from Shovels & Rope.
