The official 238th birthday party for the United States of America doesn’t fire up for another week, but festivities get under way this weekend.
Conway Chamber of Commerce’s Riverfest has remained a rite of summer for more than three decades in Horry County’s seat, and always the weekend before Independence Day, so 2014 is no exception, with a day of activities downtown, in and by the city’s Riverfront Park, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Sea Notes Choral Society will perform its “To Those Who Serve” patriotic concert twice this weekend: 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Brunswick Community College Odell Williamson Auditorium, off U.S. 17 in Supply, N.C.
The Myrtle Beach Pelicans are out of town for a week starting July 4, but the Carolina League playoff-bound baseball team will celebrate Independence Day a tad early with post-game fireworks July 2-3 after playing the Winston-Salem Dash.
So, for anyone who wants a jump start on Fourth of July fun, batter up!
