A new event is headed to downtown Myrtle Beach, and it will run every Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. until Aug. 30.

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Bonanza will start July 4 at the former Pavilion site.

"We are excited to transform the former Myrtle Beach Pavilion property into a family-friendly entertainment venue this summer that offers locals and visitors alike another reason to visit the Oceanfront Boardwalk District," Larry Bond, who owns several Myrtle Beach restaurants, said in a news release.
