Ripley's Odditorium in Myrtle Beach to celebrate "World Sword Swallower's Day" Saturday

For the 10th time, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums will celebrate World Sword Swallower’s Day, on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, and they include the Ripley’s site in its block of attractions at 901-915 N. Ocean Blvd., Myrtle Beach.

The show is free to see, outside the Odditorium at 2 p.m., in a presentation headlined by Haley Hall, an 18-year-old whom Ripley’s records state was the youngest sword swallower in the world when she downed her first sword at age 15. A grand finale is slated for 2:25 p.m. Ripley’s mascot Sharkee also will visit, with music from Corey Holden, director of Ripley’s Ruckus Drumline & Fun Squad.

After the show, Ripley’s will have a “Carolina Love” discount, to all five Myrtle Beach sites: the aforementioned cluster, with Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, Haunted Adventure, Marvelous Mirror Maze and 5D Moving Theater – and at Ripley’s Aquarium, at Broadway at the Beach, on 29th Avenue North, between U.S. 17 Bypass and Robert M. Grissom Parkway – with tickets $10 plus tax for each, for S.C. and N.C. residents with ID, for use by Feb. 28. Also, $1 from every ticket sale through this promotion will be donated to the American Heart Association.
