Many people who come to coastal South Carolina and choose to stay in a North Myrtle Beach condo rental from us want to fully experience what it’s like to live here. This is especially true for the people that return year after year. These vacationers know their way around the area and what it has to offer. They’re good at finding the best deals, know where their favorite restaurants are, and can locate the finest golf packages.
But to fully experience life here as the residents do you have to take in a few of the local events taking place during your stay — events such as the following that are both just a short drive from your North Myrtle Beach condo rental.
The Belin United Methodist Church Annual Blessing of the Inlet is taking place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Come out and be a part of this annual day-long celebration of worship, entertainment, great food, family fun and arts & crafts. The “Blessing of the Inlet” ceremony will start at 11:30 a.m. Admission is free. The event, now in its 16th year, will be held at Belin United Methodist Church (4183 Hwy 17 Business) in Murrells Inlet. Call 843-651-5099 for more information.
On May 4 the 8th Annual Makai Luau, a Grand Strand tradition, will be held from 6 -10 p.m. at the Hot Fish Club located in beautiful Murrells Inlet, SC. This by-ticket-only benefit begins at 6 p.m. on the lawn of the Hot Fish Club and will feature live music, a fire and hula show from Chief Kamu, a traditional luau buffet, beer and wine beverages, as well as the wildly popular Surfers Punch. There will be prizes for the Ugliest Hawaiian Shirt contest, a Best Lei contest, and more. All proceeds from this event fund the projects of the Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots, non-profit, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches. Tickets prices will be on sale at area surf shops, through a local Surfrider member, or by visiting Surfrider’s website www.surfridergrandstrand.org. Contact Bruxanne Hein at 333-2034 for more information.
So when you’re visiting the South Carolina shores, take in as many local events as you can and you’ll experience first hand how enjoyable living here can truly be.
