It's time for your next Myrtle Beach vacation! You have your condo reserved, you have your packing lists made, but have you taken the time to see what's going on along the Grand Strand? Here are our top picks for early June happenings taking place this Summer!
June 2-3: Sun Fun Festival
The Sun Fun Festival started in 1951 and ran until 2011 before returning in 2016. This year, the festival runs from June 2-3, with events taking place along Ocean Boulevard near the Boardwalk and Plyler Park. The fun begins on Friday, June 2, when professional sculptors, the Sand Lovers, begin perfecting their craft along the shore of Myrtle Beach. See if you can guess what they will build! From 6pm - 10pm Friday evening, enjoy Carnival games, demonstrations in Plyler Park, Sun Fun Jail, face painting, Coca-Cola Beach Crew, and musical entertainment from Too Much Sylvia. On Saturday, don't miss the Sun Fun Festival Parade, which begins at 8th Avenue North and works its way up to 16th Avenue North on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy performances by the Golden Knights, partake in Quick Sand demonstrations with the Sand Lovers, and again enjoy carnival games, musical entertainment, and more along the Boardwalk area. Turn your eyes to the sky at 10:30 pm, as fireworks dazzle the horizon above the 2nd Avenue Pier. Be a part of one of Myrtle Beach's oldest traditions when you join us for the 2017 Sun Fun Festival.
