Hardeeville is all about family values and strong community ties and nothing demonstrates this more than having everyone come out together and enjoy a community event. Every month it seems like there's something going on at the City Recreation Complex. In August, the Hardeeville Police Department gathers the community for National Night Out. In 2008, the City hosted the Jasper County Relay for Life. A fishing rodeo has become an annual tradition, as well as Fireworks and Fun, the City's Independence Day celebration. In December, Santa Claus gives out cookies at the City's Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration. With a facility like Hardeeville's there are always outside organizations looking to hold events here. Hardeeville is always a great place to visit but on these days it becomes extra special.
