Berkeley Co. Deputies out in full force for annual Coonfest Party

Posted: Updated:

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) -- Deputies with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office are out in full force this weekend at the annual Coonfest Party on Racoon Island.

Officials said the deputies will be checking boats for required safety equipment, underage drinking and boating under the influence.

Last year, several arrests were made and many citations were issued, most of which were alcohol related, officials said.

Officials said they are expecting stronger than normal currents in the Diversion Canal and Cooper River due to the recent amount of rainfall.

Officials are expecting a record crowd for the annual even.
