03 Jun 5 Fun Events to Catch This Summer
Stonegate at Prince Creek residents have plenty of fun things to see and do this summer. Here’s a list of some of the local events to mark on your calendar:
* June 3-Aug. 30: There’s summertime fun every night of the week this year at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk’s Hot Summer Nights Festival. Featuring live music by local and regional bands five nights a week (from 7 to 9 p.m.), Hot Summer Nights also features a free fireworks display at 10 p.m. on Wednesday nights, and a Kids Festival from 7 to 9 p.m. on Mondays. Other special events are scheduled throughout the summer but you can drive to Myrtle Beach knowing that there’s always something going on down on The Strip.
* June 14-16: Experience a taste of Italian food, music and culture at the Italian Festival. Held at Grand Park in the Market Common district, this three-day festival features excellent Italian favorites, such as Italian sausage and peppers, pizza, cannollis and wine. A classic car show, live music, arts and crafts vendors and raffles are among the many activities scheduled for the popular annual event.
* June 14: Turn back the clock and get ready to rock at the Hard Rock Cafe’s 44th Birthday Bash. Located at Broadway at the Beach’s Celebrity Square, this pyramid-shaped building will play host to 1970s music, disco dancing and entertainment. Attendees will receive free celebratory cupcakes and a wide range of fun and free activities to wish the rock-n-roll-themed eateries big day.
* June 18: Experience all the great things Pawleys Island has to offer at this annual fundraiser for the local Rotary Club chapter. Held at the Hammock Shops Village, this festival features live music, food and drink booths, kids activities and entertainment throughout the night. The event is from 6 to 10 p.m.. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for seating.
* July 4: Only in a fishing village like Murrells Inlet would they hold a parade on water, and this patriotic event is one of the highlights of the year on the Grand Strand. The 32nd Annual Murrells Inlet Fourth of July Boat Parade begins at noon on the Fourth at Garden City Point. The red, white and blue flotilla makes its way through the Inlet, and landlubbers can watch the procession from various points along the way, including the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, Jetty View Walk and various marinas. The party and fireworks continue through the night at the Marshwalk.
