Fall Festivals At Broadway Make Myrtle Beach's Secret Season Fun

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Special Events

Fall is called “the secret season" in Myrtle Beach. The summer crowds are gone but the weather is perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities. The air temperatures are in the high 70s, while the ocean water hovers around 73 degrees. Best of all, it's festival season in Myrtle Beach, and there's something going on at Broadway at the Beach every week.

Cars take center stage on October 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. when the 5th Annual Coastal Carolina Mustang Stampede & All Ford Car Show is held near Hard Rock Cafe. It's been more than 50 years since the first Mustang was introduced. The 1965 version became the first car ever to win the Tiffany Gold Medal for excellence in American design. Come see how the car named Motor Trend's Car of The Year twice has evolved over the years, while capturing a slot on Car and Driver's Ten Best list six times. But this show isn't just about Mustangs. Registration is open to all Ford vehicles in 23 classes, so there will be lots of models to check out.

The following week, the Out of the Darkness Walk will be held on October 10, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. and the walk at 10 a.m. The event provides an opportunity to get some exercise in while raising money for a good cause. Proceeds from the Walk benefit American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. After you've built up an appetite walking, check out the Sons of Italy Festival from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on October 10 in the parking lot near Hard Rock Cafe. Food and drink vendors will line the parking lot serving up everything Italian, and specialty gift vendors will be offering unique gifts and souvenirs. The event will continue through Sunday, October 11, from noon to 7 p.m.

Love classic cars? Mark your calendar for the Cruisin' The Beach Car Show from October 15-17 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Spectators can get up close to classic cars, trucks, motorcycles, street rods and muscle cars at this event hosted by the Myrtle Beach Car Club. There will be vendors offering T-shirts, souvenirs, food and drink, as well as awards, a raffle, door prizes and trophies. A portion of the proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Children's Hospital of South Carolina.

At 9 a.m. on October 17, registration begins for the 2015 Waccamaw Heart Walk and the walk gets started at 10 a.m. The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association's premiere event and it promotes physical activity and heart-healthy living, so grab some friends and come walk!

On Saturday, October 24, adults can celebrate Halloween with DJ Barry at Revolutions. Dress in costume and you'll get free admission that night to Revolutions, Crocodile Rocks, Malibu's Surf Bar, Club Boca, Froggy Bottoms and Broadway Louie's. Then join in the Costume Contest in Celebrity Square where you can win up to $2000 if your costume is one of the best.

When it's time for the kids to dress up and go on the hunt for candy, bring your little ghosts and goblins to Broadway at the Beach. On October 31 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. , they can Trick or Treat in a fun and safe environment where participating merchants will be waiting with little surprises for all those in costume. Finish off your evening of Halloween fun with a fireworks show over Lake Broadway at 8 p.m.

Enjoy the fall weather and all the October festivities at Broadway at the Beach!

July Is National Ice Cream Month. Enjoy!

Do you love ice cream? Does the mere thought of a double-scoop on a cone bring a smile to your face? When the warm July sun starts beating down, do you start dreaming about thick strawberry shakes?

July is National Ice Cream Month, designated by Congress and President Reagan in 1984 to honor America's favorite confection. But Americans began their love affair with ice cream way before that.

We invented the concept of the ice cream parlor in 1776. America is the birthplace of both the ice cream scoop (1878) and the ice cream cone (1904). Once a desert only available to the rich, ice cream was so popular among average Americans by World War II, that the Armed Forces became major ice cream producers. The Navy even ended up running the world's first floating ice cream parlor to produce ice cream for sailors serving in the Pacific in 1945.

Today, America eats more ice cream than any other country in the world. We consume an average of 6 gallons of the stuff per person each year.

At Broadway at the Beach, ice cream is available in several different locations, tastes and textures. Two stores serve the "swirled-class" flavors of the "euphoric concoctions" at Ben & Jerry's. At Cold Stone Creamery, you can enjoy ice cream made fresh in the store each day. If frozen custard is your thing, head to Kohr's Family Homemade. Or completely throw calorie counting out the window and head to The Fudgery (north or south) where ice cream is served as a complement to spectacular fudge. There's even an opportunity to have ice cream as part of a meal at Johnny Rockets where hand-dipped shakes are served with burgers and a side of dancing and singing.

Since it came on the scene in America, ice cream has been a real star. For Americans, it's one of life's best indulgences.

"Happiness is ice cream," wrote Peanuts® creator Charles Schulz.

Come get some.
