Fourth of July in Myrtle Beach
July 4th is right around the corner and if you are lucky enough to be celebrating this all-American holiday in Myrtle Beach you won’t be disappointed by the array of local events happening during this extended weekend. From boat parades to colorful fireworks displays – we promise you will find plenty to keep you busy. Check out some of the exciting fourth of July events taking place near Beach Colony Resort and celebrate the fourth in style!
It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without fireworks and there are plenty of places along the Grand Strand that you can enjoy a spectacular display. Head over to Second Avenue Pier at the south end of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to see fireworks over the ocean or, if you are out and about on the town, check out the display at Barefoot Landing (10:15 pm) or Broadway at The Beach (10:00 pm).
The annual Murrells Inlet Boat Parade will set sail at high tide on July 4th – 5:00 pm this year. Located just south of Myrtle Beach, this quaint seaside town knows how to celebrate the fourth in style. Grab a spot along the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, Belin Methodist Church, or along the Marsh Jetty and watch as local boats show off their finest red, white, and blue. There will also be a fireworks show at Veteran’s Pier at 9:00 pm.
