Most beach goers are familiar with all of the fun, family friendly events that Myrtle Beach has to offer during the prime summer travel months. However, don’t even think that the beach goes into hibernation after the season has passed; quite the contrary, actually. When the temperatures begin to cool the beach comes alive with festive events to welcome in the fall season. Halloween, in particular, offers tons of spook-tacular fun – if you know where to look. Beach Colony is in the heart of Myrtle Beach and close to all of the action. Take a look at our roundup of Halloween themed events and pencil a few in during your October beach trip.
Boardwalk Fright Nights
New to the area, the Boardwalk Fright Nights promotion began October 11th and runs each weekend through November 2nd. Stay alert, as the downtown Myrtle Beach area has been overrun by zombies! They are roaming the streets and the boardwalk just waiting for their next victims. There is also a Zombie Quarantine area where you can take pictures and get up close and personal to the living dead. In addition, visitors will get discounts to the boardwalk attractions and Ripley’s Haunted Adventure.
Hallowine Dinner at Croissants
If you are looking for a night away from the little ones, make plans to attend the annual Hallowine Dinner at Croissants Bistro & Bakery on Wednesday, October 30th. Featuring 5 themed courses, like bleeding hearts brie and frankenribs, this meal is sure to please your inner goblin. Each course is paired with wines that have been hand selected to compliment each plate. Dress to impress because the evening will include costume contests and themed games.
