September kicks off with the Labor Day weekend, and the last chance for a fling at the beach before the kids start back to school.
Visitors to Captain's Quarters resort should be sure not to miss the Beach Boogie & BBQ Festival. This event will be held in Valor Park, which is inside the Base Recreational Center in Myrtle Beach. A number of teams will be competing for prizes for the best BBQ food on the Friday as well as the best booth and showmanship. Members of the public can purchase and try out some of the dishes that are the results of this competition, once the latter comes to a close. On the Saturday the festival turns to Wheels at the Beach, with prizes being awarded for Best Engine, Best Paint, Lady's Choice, People’s Choice, Best of the Show and many more. There will also be mystery drawings of prizes, so why not take a chance?
The first three days of the month coincide with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ final baseball games of the season. Play starts just after 7.00 p.m. on the Saturday and 6.00 p.m. on the following two days. This event is being televised and Saturday is a Kids’ Club Night, Sunday a Youth Jersey Giveaway and on the Monday Kids Eat Free. The Pelicans will be playing the Lynchburg Hillcats. Make sure to check out the Myrtle Beach discounts available at Pelicans’ games for Vacation Myrtle Beach guests.
If you’re an aficionado of yard and garage sales then Saturday the 8th is a date to mark in your calendar. Get yourself over to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center at 2101 North Oak Street for South Carolina’s largest garage sale, with as many as 300 vendors showing their unseen treasures and other wares. The sale starts at 7.00 a.m. so an early start is called for if you want to be the first to sample the many bargains that will be on sale. Entrance to the garage sale is free, though parking is not.
For the benefit of those that are unaware of the fact, the Shag is the State Dance of South Carolina. It’s a dance that goes back to the 1930s and 40s – the era of swing music and big bands. And shag dancers from all over will be gathering along the beaches of the Grand Strand for the annual Society of Stranders Fall Migration, which will take place between 14th and 23rd. The venue? Just follow the music!
One event that’s definitely worth attending when staying at Captain’s Quarters is the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art. The festival commences on 27th September and goes on well into October, embracing a wide variety of performing and visual arts.
One of several Oktoberfests to be held along the Grand Strand will be held on 28th thru 30th of September. This one is at Valor Park in the Market Common. You can enjoy German food, wines and, of course, beers, and there’s going to be plenty to keep the kids occupied.
On September 22 why not get yourself and the family over to the Lee's Inlet Apothecary's 9th Anniversary Party & Soda Jerk Contest. There will be stacks of fun for the entire family, with a moon bounce, snow cones, popcorn and the Soda Jerk competition. The following Saturday sees the 9th Annual Irish Italian International Festival in Main Street, North Myrtle Beach. There will be street vendors, street performers and food from local restaurants, which will be competing for the titles of Best Decorated, Best Entrée and Best Dessert. If you fancy yourself as a cook, anyone can enter the competition for the best spaghetti sauce.
September 27 thru 30 will see the St. John's Greek Orthodox Church of Myrtle Beach hosting its 21st Annual Greek Festival , where you’ll find a good selection of Greek foods to try out – there’ll be dishes such as Spanikopita and Mousaka, Greek Salad, Gyros and roast lamb. These well known dishes will be accompanied by Greek pastries, breads and wines, and a background of Greek music.
