Give Back During Great American Summer Nights At Broadway at the Beach

How do we give back? How do we make a positive impact? How can we help?

Those were the questions we asked ourselves at Broadway at the Beach when planning this year's annual Summer Nights entertainment series. Sure, we love seeing all your memories made while interacting with stilt-walkers strolling along The Avenue, singing along to your favorite tunes with singers on the Heroes Harbor stage or dancing your cares away with the entire family in Center Court… but how can we enhance your experience and at the same time make a positive impact here in our community?

That's when it hit us… who better to honor and give back to than the men and women of our Armed Forces?

So now let us introduce Great American Summer Nights at Broadway at the Beach!

Beginning June 1st through September 1st, Broadway at the Beach will partner with Blue Star Mothers, a congressionally-chartered non-profit, non-partisan, and non-sectarian group of mothers who have children serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, including veterans. Their mission is to support one another, support our men and women in uniform, and promote patriotism in their community. Broadway at the Beach supports Blue Star Mothers and their mission and will be donating all the change collected in our fountains throughout the summer.

In addition, you can stop by our Guest Services Center and for a one dollar donation you'll receive a red, white and blue Broadway Great American Summer Nights souvenir bracelet. While there, feel free to write a note of thanks or have the kids create a card or draw a picture at the Mail for our Military table and then drop it in the mailbox. Each note, card and picture will be given to Blue Star Mothers for inclusion in the many care packages they put together for our troops.

It's a quick stop and a great way to put a smile on a US Servicemen or woman across the world!

Of course, you can find a complete calendar of nightly entertainment here.

So as the temperatures rise, the school days dwindle and you're making your Myrtle Beach plans, we hope you plan on joining us all summer long and give back to our heroes during Great American Summer Nights at Broadway at the Beach!

Run, Taste, Sip & Go Green This St. Patrick’s Day Weekend At Broadway

Posted in Featured Posts, Special Events

Sage, pickle, emerald, seaweed, mint, lime, chartreuse and seafoam… no, it's not some weird recipe that cures any winter ailment, it's just a few of the shades of green you may want to wear during St. Patrick's Day weekend at Broadway at the Beach! From green drinks and eats to sharks and shamrocks to lacing up the running shoes with fellow leprechauns, there are many ways to celebrate the green weekend with us!

But first, history…

A quick google search tells us that Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick dates back to the 17th century and is a cultural and religious celebration held every year on March 17th in celebration of the holiday's namesake, the foremost patron saint of Ireland!

From Ireland to Broadway…

Although you are encouraged to don your favorite shade of green, you don't need the luck of the Irish to enjoy all of the festivities! Here's a quick three day Broadway breakdown of how you can celebrate the holiday all in one place!

Friday:

Ready, Set… Go Green!

Before you enjoy all the tasty treats and sweet sips, you can kick off the weekend as you race around Broadway during the Shamrock-N-Roll 5K Run and Celebration on Friday, March 15th! The race begins at 6pm with the after party on The Avenue featuring live music by Backfire! For more information on the race and how to register, click here.

Saturday:

Sharks and Shamrocks

Take the weekend fun to new depths of the deep blue as you wear your green at Ripley's Aquarium during their Sharks and Shamrocks event all day! There will be special food and drink offerings throughout the venue including beer and Irish spirits plus there is a Lucky Scavenger Hunt for all ages with a chance to win a grand prize! For more information on this event, click here!

Sunday:

Start the day with brunch and all the games at Dave & Buster's Green Kegs and Eggs event beginning at 11am! With St. Paddy's day swag, a brunch buffet and unlimited game play at just $22 a person, we can't think of a better way to kick off the day!

But of course, the fun and festivities don't stop there!

You can also drink up some of those green brews and enjoy live entertainment at several places at Broadway including Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and Liberty Brewery & Grill all day!

If the pre-spring breeze is more your thing, you can enjoy the official Broadway St. Patrick's Day Celebration Street Party outside on The Avenue featuring live music from The Kevin Nichols Band from 3pm – 7pm. Of course, you can get your fill of green beer and taste some Irish treats while you take in the sounds of live music!

So whether you're a race runner, green beer sipper, Irish food taster or a live music listener, or you enjoy a little bit of everything, you can find it all this St. Patrick's Day weekend at Broadway at the Beach!

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!
