Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Special Events

It's hard to believe, but October is here and with it comes lesser humidity, more pumpkin flavored options and new ways to experience fall at Broadway at the Beach!

From the classics to today's latest models, car enthusiasts will be revvin' their engines at not one, but two car shows at Broadway. On Saturday, October 7th, Broadway at the Beach will host the Coastal Carolina Mustang Club's 7th Annual Grand Strand Stampede. From 8am to 4pm, around 350 Ford Mustangs of yesteryear and today will be vying for bragging rights and awards. The following week, from October 12th through October 14th, Broadway at the Beach will host the Cruisin' the Beach car show also featuring a variety of vehicles. This three-day event features vendors, 50/50 ticket sales and awards! Both events are held in the overflow parking lots near Broadway movie theatre.

This October will also bring awareness to two charitable organizations at Broadway. All month long, Wet Willie's will feature their breast cancer awareness campaign, where a portion of pink drink sales will benefit the Susan G. Komen organization and on Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th, Wet Willie's will hold their 7th Annual Koozies for Boobies Breast Cancer Awareness Party.

On Saturday, October 14th, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will hold an Out of Darkness Walk. With registration beginning at 10am and an opening ceremony at 11am at the Heroes Harbor stage near Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, this 1.5 mile walk through the villages of Broadway raises funds for suicide prevention in South Carolina and across the nation.

This October, along with their everyday rock memorabilia and delicious drink and eats options, Hard Rock Café will feature live music on various nights and every Saturday, you don't want to forget your dancing shoes as you enjoy Salsa Nights with DJ Alberto!

Now we couldn't mention October without talking about Halloween! The Grand Strand's largest Halloween Bash will be held Saturday, October 28th along The Avenue at Broadway! It's the one night of the year where ghosts, zombies, superheroes, animals and movie stars roam around The Avenue (okay, not actual ghosts, superheroes and movie stars, but Halloween enthusiasts dressed up as them) all competing for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the annual costume contest! Whether you dress up or dress down, come and enjoy live music, entertainment and more all beginning at 7pm! For more information on this event, click here.

Although the Halloween Bash on The Avenue is geared more towards the adults, the little ones can enjoy two trick-or-treat events at Broadway, or, one trick-or-treat and one truck-or-treat! On Saturday, October 14th from 10am to 2pm, Broadway will once again host The Sun News' Truck-Or-Treat. This free community event will be held in the parking lot next to Landry's Seafood House and will feature an interactive experience for kids and their families to check out all kinds of trucks including emergency vehicles, big rigs and more all while receiving candies and other treats! Click here for information on this event.

On Halloween night, the little ones can enjoy trick-or-treating throughout Broadway from 4:30pm-6:30pm! After trick-or-treating, you'll want to stick around as we light up the sky with a Fireworks Extravaganza over Lake Broadway at 8pm!

As you can tell, October is a busy month at Broadway and we haven't even mentioned the Happy Hour specials and special game day menus of Liberty Brewery & Grill and the All You Can Eat Oyster Roasts at Original Shucker's! You'll just have to experience it all for yourself as you FALL back in love with Broadway all October long!
