It’s Time for KidzTime at Broadway at the Beach

This year's 18th Annual KidzTime Festival at Broadway at the Beach is shaping up to be a fun filled, high energy and memory making event! From games and giveaways, live entertainment and a fun dance party, your little one can enjoy activities all while just being a kid!

New this year, we're hoping this event will help kids in our area far past the last Saturday in February!

How? Broadway at the Beach is partnering with Help 4 Kids and during the event, volunteers will be collecting much needed items for their Backpack Buddies program. So as you are making your way to the festival, you are encouraged to bring along something from their list. Each donation will help kids in our community stay healthy and not hungry!

As you're helping with your donations, we've got someone else helping save the day!

Marvel's Captain America will swoop in giving kids an opportunity to get up close and personal with the big screen and comic book hero! Bring your phones and snap away and make sure you use #KidzFestMB when posting!

With more than 50 vendors offering free activities for the kids, your day will be jam packed as you move along inside and outside our KidzTime tent located in Parking Lot 17 on the 21st Avenue North side of Broadway near WonderWorks and the Broadway 360 Observation Wheel. From feeding farm animals, to having their face painted, riding in a train to jumping in bounce houses, your little one can run, jump and play the entire time from 11am – 4pm.

We've also got live entertainment hitting the stage, with family friendly performances emcee'd by DJ Corey Holden! And don't forget to grab a light snack or drink at the event!

It's a day you don't want to miss! So mark your calendars for this year's 18th Annual KidzTime Festival on Saturday, February 23rd from 11am to 4pm! See you there!

A Limited Engagement At Legends In Concert: Church Basement Ladies

The holidays are over and the decorations are coming down. There's a chill in the air and let's face it, sometimes the subtle post-Christmas gloom of January sets in causing some of us to hibernate this time of year.

But this January, you have a chance to laugh your way out of the seasonal blahs at Broadway at the Beach's Legends in Concert during the limited engagement of Church Basement Ladies!

So what exactly is Church Basement Ladies?

Church Basement Ladies is a national touring show presented by Legends in Concert and Troupe America, Inc. that uses the popular Scandinavian Lutheran humor writings of "The Lutheran Ladies," Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson, authors of a host of humorous books, the most famous being GROWING UP LUTHERAN.

The show features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fundraiser, and, of course, a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying and tolerating each other as the true "steel magnolias" of the church. Funny and down to earth, these ladies will be familiar to any audience as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.

You catch one of eight performances January 16th - January 20th. For more information and to book your seat, click here.

So before you choose to stay in and give in to those annual winter woes waiting for the first glimpse of Spring, and enjoy a night of laughter with the Church Basement Ladies at Legends in Concert.

May we suggest a hot pretzel from Auntie Anne's, freshly popped popcorn from Sweet South Popcorn Company or a Halloween themed chocolate covered apple from Kilwins! On Halloween night after you've trick or treated and before your little one (or you) dive into your sweet treats, why not have a family dinner at one of your favorite Broadway restaurants and cap off your evening with fireworks over Lake Broadway at 8pm!

We’ve got the What, When, Why, Where & Who of the Inaugural Burgers, Bites & Brews.

What:

Let us introduce the inaugural Burgers, Bites & Brews at Broadway at the Beach. You are invited as some of your favorite Broadway at the Beach eateries showcase their best foods and of course, battle it out in a burger competition. Once you arrive, you will want to get your Broadway Sampler food tickets from one of two ticket locations set up at either end of The Avenue. Tickets will be sold in $1 increments with food sampling prices ranging from 1 to 5 tickets each with all burger samples available for just 3 tickets each!

So come and enjoy and cast your burger ballot! Brews, soft drinks, waters and other beverages will be sold separately by the Broadway Sampler participants. While you're munching and making your best burger selection, you can enjoy live music on The Avenue stage, mascot and character appearances, and hourly giveaways, face painting, stilt walking balloon artists, a scavenger hunt and more!

When:

The event will begin at 11am, with judging by local celebrities ending at 4pm, but stick around and enjoy live music on the stage until 9pm!

Why?

What better way is there to show some love to our local community than by giving back? This event allows us to do just that as 50% of the Broadway Sampler sales will benefit the Boys & Girls Club Of The Grand Strand.

Where?

Burgers, Bites & Brews will be centrally located in the heart of Broadway at the Beach on The Avenue in between Hard Rock Café and Dave & Buster's! However, you can enjoy sidewalk sales throughout Broadway!

Who?

So who will you be sampling all this deliciousness from? Here's a sweet and savory list!

Dave & Buster's, Hard Rock Café, Wahlburgers, Liberty Brewery & Grill, Senor Frog's, American Tap House, Good Time Charley's, Johnny Rockets, Malibu's, Oz and Kilwins!
