Burning of the Socks

Georgetown residents burn their socks, an annual tradition that symbolizes the start of boating season. Bob Turner, now a Pawley's Island resident, claims to have started the Burning of the Socks festival in 1978 in Annapolis, Md. Five years ago, Johnny Weaver started the tradition in Georgetown to help raise funds for the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
