September 23, 2013 The Edge of America is turning 40, and Folly Beach celebrated the milestone in true beach-town style by hosting a three-day event. Saturday and Sunday saw an old-school carnival, complete with a ferris wheel, swings, slide, carousel and games. Food vendors from favorite Folly restaurants lined the streets, as did booths of local clubs and organizations. With old-school arcade games and a pirate-themed jump castle and slide, kids young and old had plenty to entertain them. Festivities also included a 5k Run, Walk, Skate, Bike and Dog Walk, longboard surf competition, a half-rubber tournament, a classic car show and live music.
