The Maple Leaf flag has an extra place to fly every March across Myrtle Beach for Canadian-American Days.
The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce will celebrate this 52nd annual celebration March 9-17, as an extra red carpet rolls out for vacationers from the United States’ northern neighbor, the second largest country on Earth, and home to the Hockey Hall of Fame, in Toronto.
Highlights of the festival include the return of the Celtic step-dance sibling trio Searson (www.searsonband.com) from the Ottawa Valley, bordering Canada’s most populous provinces, Ontario and Quebec. They will play at noon at the Myrtle Beach and Inlet Square malls on March 13 and 14, respectively.
Nora Hembree Battle, spokeswoman for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, and the musical trio’s Erin Searson, the eldest, each talked about Can-Am Days’ tradition on the Grand Strand.
