Fireworks, Fun and the Fourth of July

Celebrate Independence Day in North Myrtle Beach!

The Week of the Fourth is always a fantastic time at the beach with festivals, parades, concerts and a night sky streaming with fiery rockets, booming starbursts and sparkling showers. We hope you're able to join us at the beach for the excitement and fun. Some favorites that our friendly folks at CENTURY 21 Thomas Beach Vacations suggest include these:

19th Annual North Myrtle Beach Fireworks Spectacular - blasts off from the Cherry Grove Pier at 3500 North Ocean Boulevard starting at 9:30 pm. It's a popular show so we suggest you hit the beach well before the first rocket's red glare. Bring a beach chair, a cooler with snacks and beverages, settle in and enjoy the pyrotechnic celebration. BTW... you can also view the fireworks from the porches and balconies of many Cherry Grove vacation rental homes and condos of Century 21 Thomas Beach Vacations.

Barefoot Landing's Fun on the Fourth - Summerfest! Fun begins at 7pm with a strolling boardwalk parade and ends with a grand fireworks display over the lake (starts at 10:15 pm).

Calabash & Carolina Shores Independence Day Celebration - starts at 5:30 pm on the Calabash riverfront at 9887 Oak Street next to Captain John's Seafood House. Festivities include live music by Parrot Party (a Jimmy Buffett cover band, of course!), raffles, crafts, festival treats and a super fireworks show (begins shortly after 9 pm).

Southside Fourth of July - is at the Pier in Surfside Beach from 6 to 10 pm with live entertainment, free ice cream, concessions and fireworks (9:30 start). Bring a beach chair and have a blast!

Broadway at the Beach's BIG TIME Fourth - includes the Whacker Barrel street percussion show, live music at Celebrity Square by the Andrew Thielen Big Band, strolling entertainers from Le Grand Cirque, fun with the Bryan Dangerous Comedy Show, and a fireworks extravaganza over Lake Broadway beginning at 10 pm.

Salute from the Shore - 4th of July Military Flyover of the SC coast gives you a chance to honor our armed forces as you salute the flyover by four F-16s of the 79th "Flying Tigers" Fighter Squadron. The flyover starts at the NC state line at 1 pm and continues south, ending at Hilton Head Island at 1:30. For the Grand Strand area, we suggest being on the beach before 1 pm. Details can be found online at

CENTURY 21 Thomas Beach Vacations still has a few vacation rental homes and condos available for the Week of the Fourth as well as a limited number of other open July weeks - some with special summer discounts of 30% or more. Call us and reserve yours today!
