Myrtle Beach City Council unanimously approved a fun, new entertainment event called the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Bonanza every Wednesday and Thursday night from 6-11 p.m., beginning next Wed., July 4 through Thurs., Aug. 30 on the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place between 8th and 9th Avenues North.

This free event will feature live entertainment, variety shows, talent and karaoke contests, DJ performances and food challenges, all part of the Big Screen Party Machine entertainment schedule that includes a jumbo digital board with live emcee and loads of prizes for the winning participants. The event will also include five food trucks, a kid’s activity area and outdoor recreational games for adults and kids as part of the event’s ‘Beach Olympics’ element. 

“We are excited to transform the former Myrtle Beach Pavilion property into a family-friendly entertainment venue this summer that offers locals and visitors alike another reason to visit the Oceanfront Boardwalk District,” said Larry Bond, chairman of the Ocean Walk Task Force, a non-profit volunteer-based organization that envisions bringing more events like this downtown in the future. “One of our goals is to create events in the summer and shoulder-season months that generate new visitors to the area while showcasing the multitude of attractions, dining and retail options we have on display.”

Wednesday evenings will focus on Fitness, Food Trucks and Fireworks as attendees can chose from a variety of fun recreational games and activities in the Beach Olympics line-up to participate in, enjoy delicious food trucks onsite and then stick around for the fireworks display at 10 p.m. after the event concludes. Wednesdays will also have a trivia contest so bring your family and friends to this battle of the brains and prove just how smart you really are! Thursdays will feature a talent contest so bring your extraordinary gifts and expertise and prepare to impress the crowd with some cool prizes up for grabs! Every evening of this new, free-to-attend summer event series will offer a different event schedule so no one evening will be the same!
