Fall Means Festivals, Food & Fun At Broadway

Summer's in our rear-view mirror, and now it's time to look ahead to fall. Broadway at the Beach is gearing up for a month-long roster of festivals, food and fun throughout October.

Car connoisseurs race to Broadway in October to enjoy great car shows. On October 4, the PT Cruisers "Return To The Beach" for the 15th year to put their collection of specially-designed beauties on display from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. That same day, the 4th annual Coastal Carolina Mustang Stampede & Classic Ford Car Show has awesome automobiles, an on-site DJ, food and games from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Cruisin' The Beach Car Show revs up at 8 a.m. on October 16 and keeps its motor running through October 18. This show is open to all vehicles from hot rods to cool convertibles, and trophies will be awarded at 4 p.m. on the final day. In between, spectators can check out the vehicles, feast on foods, find awesome tee shirts, and get a chance to win prizes.

One of the high points of Myrtle Beach's fall season is the Sons of Italy Festa Italiana (October 11-12). Abundanza is the word for this Italian festival where everything from authentic Neapolitan-style pizza pies to meatball sandwiches and homemade italian desserts will be available. Continuous entertainment, arts & crafts, free face painting for the kids, and even a spaghetti eating contest are planned.

In addition to fun, there's fund-raising also going on during October. The 4th Annual Myrtle Beach Out of the Darkness Community Walk (October 11) presented by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, The American Heart Association's 2014 Waccamaw Heart Walk (October 18) and Grand Strand Humane Society's Walk for the Animals (October 26) will also be coming to Broadway.

As Halloween closes in, Broadway at the Beach hosts the largest costume contest in South Carolina, Nightmare in the Square Adult Halloween Costume Contest & Party starting at 8:00 p.m. with DJ Barry!

The month wraps up on October 31 with Broadway's annual Trick or Treat. From 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., our shops will have the welcome mat out for little ghosts and goblins who trick or treat in our fun and safe environment. To close out the evening, the autumn sky will light up at 8 p.m. with some brilliant fireworks.

With all these activities, it's easy to fall in love with October at Broadway at the Beach.
