DELUGE 2014: An Epic Water Event Featuring 300,000 Gallons of Water, Bands, Food & Fun

Joe Riley Stadium is widely referred to as Charleston’s epicenter for fun. Even on a hot summer night the stadium fills with over 4,000 fans who cheer for the Charleston RiverDogs , eat world- famous ballpark food and catch up on neighborhood gossip. But The Joe is also known for hosting some crazy ideas. The DELUGE Concert on August 31 marks another milestone. Think water park meets music concert and you get the general idea.

Over 300,000 gallons of water will stream from fire hoses, sprinkler systems, water slides, water balloons and guests armed for battle as DELUGE turns back the summer heat. On stage local bands will rock the crowd, while free water-based games throughout the stadium offer lots of reasons to stay wet and cool. Water slides and a battle zone near the west entrance invite kids and adults to settle some scores. So guests should bring a towel and dig out the water blasters gathering dust in the garage. Bag your cell phones or leave them behind. There will be dry zones but expect to get wet.

Gates open at 3:00 with local bands Dead 27's, South Street and The Royal Tinfoil. Headliner Kat Robichaud of NBC’s The Voice takes the stage at 6:30 to premiere her new solo album. Those who became fans during her stint on The Voice will also enjoy the songs that left the audience cheering and the judges fighting over her talent.

Everyone who makes a donation to Windwood Farm & Family Services will receive free water balloons. This residential program for boys helps heal the effects of trauma, extreme abuse, neglect and physical cruelty. Through the love, therapy, guidance and support offered at Windwood Farm, young men’s lives are changed and bright futures are made possible. Windwood Farm has been a safe home for over 500 boys since their inception in 1985.

Thanks to support from Crews Subaru of Charleston advanced tickets are just $15. Tickets are $20 on the day of the show. To purchase online now go to DelugeCharleston.com or you may purchase without ticket fees daily from the Charleston RiverDogs box office.
