The Sun Fun Festival returns and we say goodbye to St. Patrick's Day on the Boardwalk×200.jpg

The Sun Fun Festival is returning to Myrtle Beach SC to kick off the summer season!

The popular festival in downtown Myrtle Beach was canceled in 2012 after 60 years. Many locals and visitors have missed having the festival. It was an event that had been part of their entire lives and provided a lot of memories.

The festival will be held at Plyler Park June 3-5. It will not be the only event on the Boardwalk, the Native Sons Salt Games is also planned for that weekend.

Visitors to the Sun Fun Festial can enjoy a parade, live beach music, free shag lessons, kids games and more.
