Are you and your family coming to Myrtle Beach to celebrate the 4th of July this year? If the answer is yes, then we at Sloan Realty have to tell you all about the fun that’s going on around town. Staying in one of our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep your family close to where the fun is happening at. Let’s look at a few of the events that are happening around town you don’t want to miss.
10th Annual Myrtle Beach Independence Day 5K
Get up and start the day with running in the 10th Annual Myrtle Beach Independence Day 5K run. Come to the Market Common at 7:30 am to participate in this fun 4th of July race. Each runner will receive a race shirt and a post-race breakfast from Bojangles. This happens to be one of the largest races in the area and it’s one that you don’t want to miss. If you don’t think you will be able to make it through the 5K, have no fear because they are offering a 1-mile race too. What a great way to start the holiday by getting in a little exercise!
Red, White & Blue 5K Race
Another fun 5K race that is happening in the Myrtle Beach area is the Red White & Blue 5K at Barefoot Landing. The race will begin and end at the new Amphitheater at Barefoot Landing and is something that you don’t want to miss. All are welcome to come participate including runners, walkers and those who have young ones in strollers. The race starts at 7:30 am and you can enjoy breakfast beginning at Lulu’s which is free for all registered runners. At 8:30 am the awards will be given to the runners. Don’t miss this fun and exciting race this coming up Thursday!
Hot Dog Eating Contest
Nothing says 4th of July unless there is an eating contest involved. This year come to Liberty Brewery & Grill at Broadway at the Beach for its hot dog contest. What a fun and exciting event for those who love hot dogs. The contest will begin at 3:00 pm and will have many prizes that can be won. Please note that there will be only 10 people who can register for this event and they must be over the age of 21 years old. A shirt will be provided to those who are registered at check in to wear during the contest.
July 4th Fireworks are the best when viewed at the beach. This is something that many families have grown up around with vacationing to Myrtle Beach to help celebrate the holiday. Head over to Broadway at the Beach this Thursday night at 10:00 pm to watch the fireworks extravaganza. Be sure to get there a little early so that your family can grab the best seats in the house!
