Some of the nation’s hottest country music stars will take the stage at the sold-out Carolina Country Music Fest June 8-11.
If you’re among the tens of thousands of people planning to go to the festival, you may find yourself feeling the heat, too, and not only in a musical sense.
Combine the sunshine, warm temperatures, crowds and a bit of dancing, and you’ve got a recipe for sweaty skin, a parched mouth and less-than-pleasant body odor.
Dr. James Turek, a family medicine physician with Tidelands Health, the official health care provider of the festival, says the key to staying crisp is preparation.
“Being comfortable in the heat is all about thinking ahead,” says Dr. Turek, who practices at Tidelands Health Family Medicine at Garden City. “It’s important to thoughtfully consider what you’ll wear and bring to stay as cool as possible.”
Tidelands Health will be on site with local first responders to provide urgent medical care and will support attendees’ health with health tips shared on the performance screens and an on-site information booth offering free hand sanitizer, while supplies last.
