A bit of rain to help kick off the Beaufort Water Festival is really nothing new to those who are the most faithful to the annual 10-day event.
It seems there's always a drizzle, or at least the threat of one.
The raiin was off and on tonight, but that didn't stop thousands from turning out.
I of course left early because I melt.
Enjoy the photos below.
And we have some additional photos over at our Facebook page: Facebook.com/TheDigitelBeaufort
The Island Packet has some more words and photos on opening night; you can see them here.
