Halloween in Myrtle Beach is a Frightful Good Time
Thursday, October 27, 2011 3:00 AM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC
Every year come Halloween, the normally family-friendly Grand Strand is run rampant with zombie tourists, beach-going ghosts and witches dying for a taste of our best ‘Lowcountry boil.’ While these fearfully-friendly characters are usually just costume clad visitors and locals, Halloween along the Grand Strand is no less exciting.
This year, the Myrtle Beach area is celebrating the spirit of Halloween with themed events going on all weekend long. One of the biggest Halloween celebrations takes place at Broadway at the Beach, where they kick off their ghoulish festivities at noon on Saturday, Oct. 29, with hay rides, face painting and a MagiQuest character meet-and-greet. All stores will open their doors at 5 p.m. to trick or treaters, and a firework finale at 8 p.m. solidifies the evening as one not to miss.
Looking for something a little more grown up? For adults, Broadway at the Beach hosts the largest Halloween party in the Myrtle Beach area. Beginning when the fireworks end, Celebrity Square offers a multitude of bars all decorated for the fantastically frightful holiday. And for those with a particularly creative costume this year, Broadway at the Beach also puts on the largest costume contest in the area, an area favorite with locals, beginning at 10 p.m. sharp.
