The unofficial end of summer would be incomplete without great food, live entertainment and a three-day party. Fortunately, the Beach, Boogie & BBQ festival in Myrtle Beach takes care of all that.
The 8th annual event runs Aug. 30 through Sept. 1 at Grand Park and Forbes Court at The Market Common, and you’d better come hungry; more than 75 competitors and vendors will be offering the very best barbeque they can muster. Many will be competing in Sunday’s championship cook-off for the chance to win $10,000.
Wash that barbeque down with a cold one from the beer and wine garden; you may want to bring the kids to the kids’ zone first. The whole family will enjoy the live wake board and flyboard demonstrations, however, as well as performances by Wall Street, Jim Quick & Coastline, and other bands. See the full schedule of events here.
