Thanksgiving in Myrtle Beach
Thanksgiving Day has always been a popular holiday in Myrtle Beach, with many families traveling from far and wide to Myrtle Beach resorts in order to celebrate the occasion. This year sees Thanksgiving on Thursday November 22, and will see many of the city’s restaurants and some of the Myrtle Beach hotels offering the traditional Thanksgiving feast. But the feast is not everything, and this year visitors will find a number of other events going on that must be considered.
For the energetic, there’s the Turkey Trot race – this starts in the Surfside Beach pier parking lot at 8 a.m. The event will feature a 10km, 5km, 1 mile and a free 50-yard Kid's Tot Trot, and more than 1,200 runners are expected to register.
Without a doubt, chief among these events is the Annual South Carolina State Bluegrass Festival which is to be held on three days starting on Thanksgiving. The event is to be held in the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and will feature some of the best Bluegrass music in the Carolinas. This is music that has pure grass roots running through it. Much Bluegrass is based on traditional English, Scottish and Irish folk songs sprinkled with a touch of jazz, and colored with banjos and fiddles. This is music that stirs the soul, and educates as well as entertains. If you’re a music lover this festival should not be missed.
If you are looking for a place that is open to eat, there are usually plenty of venues. Some great options include Preston's Seafood and Country Buffet, Nance's Creek Front Restaurant, Gulfstream Cafe, and the Carolina Roadhouse. All four offer a Thanksgiving buffet.
