The 6th annual Myrtle Beach Zombie Walk is April 28, in which participants dress in their gory best as they walk for charity. It’s not your typical beach activity, but it might be worth checking out, if only for the photos ops. This year, all the registration fees will be donated and split between Project Lighthouse and Wounded Warriors Project.
Registration ($5) starts at 11 a.m. at the House of Blues, and the walk starts at 6 p.m. at Barefoot Landing. There will be two stages of live music, and artists will be on hand until 5:30 p.m. to do makeup. Kids will have their own set of activities, too.

Reports the Charlotte Observer:
The pier planned by a local businessman would have a four-story building that likely would house a restaurant. It would be located in North Myrtle Beach not far from the Cherry Grove pier.
The new pier would be the first built on the Grand Strand in about 20 years.
The new pier would be the ninth in the area. We’ll keep you posted on the details!

Hundreds of shaggers will be migrating (see what we did there?) to North Myrtle Beach for the Society of Stranders fall dance festival this September. Although you’ll be able to dance your heart at one of the many dance clubs and lounges along Main Street, you won’t want to miss the event’s two big block parties on Fun Sunday and Fun Monday. They’ll feature food, music, merchandise and, of course, dancing.
SOS has a list of dates on their website. Don’t forget that we have plenty of homes and condos close to Main Street!
Spend the last long weekend of summer in North Myrtle Beach. There will be plenty of stuff to do, so you can close out the season right. See just a sampling of events below:
Beach, Boogie and BBQ Festival (8/31–9/2): This event at the Market Common features a beer garden, arts and crafts exhibitors and live entertainment. Bring the whole family, or drop the kids off at the Kids’ Zone to explore on your own.
Labor Day Fireworks at Barefoot Landing (9/1): Starting at 10 p.m., the shopping and entertainment complex will put on a fantastic fireworks show over the lake. There will also be fireworks at Broadway at the Beach at 10 p.m., and on Sunday after the Pelicans baseball game.
Beers, Brews and BBQ (9/2): Starting at 5 p.m., the free event at House of Blues will feature an assortment of local BBQ items and specialty craft beers for purchase like $3 bottles and $4 drafts.
World Amateur Golf Championship (8/27–8/31): Take an extra long weekend and catch the tail end of this tournament on Friday. The biggest perk is the 19th Hole, billed as “equal parts…clubhouse, grill, exhibition and party” on the event’s website.
We’re not sure how attending an all-day outdoors event will help you stay cool, but La Belle Amie Vineyard‘s Beat the Heat Music Fest seems like a fun idea anyway.
Music by The Renovation Band and Joan Burton starts at noon and go until 5 p.m. Smokin’ Pitt BBQ will provide food, and wine tastings will be available all day, with a vineyard tour at 2:30 p.m.
Admission is $5, but people under 18 or over 80 can get in for free. Additionally, bring a canned or dried food item for a local food bank and receive $3 off admission.
