A Taste of Beaufort festival is back (Update: Flash mob)


Update: If you measure the annual Taste of Beaufort festival's success in terms of delivering tasty food and fun, it was undoubtadly another success as some 8,000 people packed the park.

This year's festival even offered a surprise in the form of Zumba fitness themed flash mob by the local YMCA — check out the video below by Captured Moments Photography.

The local photographers also have a photo gallery from the festival (part one, part two).
