There are over 60 oceanfront resorts in North Myrtle Beach where you’ll be thrilled to stay on your next visit. This is an ideal destination for families and groups of any size. Here you’ll discover there’s something for everyone, from year-round festivals and entertaining dinner shows to challenging miniature golf, North Myrtle Beach is the place to have fun.
Speaking of fun, you should mark your calendar to be a part of the 12th Annual Lip-Rippin’ Chilympics Chili Cook-Off held on Sunday, October 16th, from noon to 6:00 p.m. at Spuds Waterfront Dining in Murrells Inlet. This annual chili competition will feature categories such as Best Overall, Best Restaurant, People’s Choice, Most Original, Best Theme, Best Use of South Carolina Ingredients, and Hottest Chili. Samples will be available for $1 each. Entertainment includes performances by Danielle Howle, Sawgrass, The Noseriders, Octopus Jones, Pur Cult, and Ten Toes Up. There will be food, soft drinks, face painting, and inflatables for the kids, as well as displays from local environmental non-profits, businesses, and artists for the whole family. Cash prizes go to all winners and will be awarded to all first and second place entries in each category. In addition, there will be one Best Overall and one Best Restaurant. This year there will also be a special competition featuring previous winners, requiring them to prepare chili with one secret main ingredient. All proceeds from the Lip-Rippin’ Chilympics Chili Cook-Off will be used for projects of the Grand Strand Surfrider Foundation, an all-volunteer, 501 c 3 non-profit serving the Grand Strand since 1998. All donations are tax-deductible. Admission is free and this event is open to the public.
