Have a blast at Barefoot Landing
Mondays at 10 p.m.
It’s no secret that Barefoot Landing is a year-round destination for waterfront dining, entertainment, and shopping. However, in the summer months, they bring out all the stops to provide guests with a full day of fun, followed by an evening of live music and fireworks.
Every Monday night from June 5 to August 28, you can enjoy live music at the Pepsi Amphitheater Stage, followed by a dazzling fireworks display that will light up the night. The firework show starts around 10 p.m. on the lake located in the heart of Barefoot Landing Prime viewing spots include the Pepsi Amphitheatre lawn, Crooked Hammock, the floating bridge by Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, and the outdoor area of Landshark Bar and Grill. The weekly fireworks are part of Barefoot Landing’s SummerFest, which offers fun and entertainment options for all ages every night of the week throughout the summer, including live music, stilt walkers, and more.
Colors burst at Broadway at the Beach
Tuesdays & Fridays at 10 p.m.
Still can’t get enough fireworks? Only a 20-minute drive from North Myrtle Beach, you can find a spectacular fireworks display at Broadway at the Beach every Tuesday and Friday at 10 p.m. The fireworks shoot off from the waterway in the middle of the venue. Locals will tell you that the best spot for viewing is by Ripley’s Aquarium or one of the floating bridges, but you should be able to see the fireworks from anywhere surrounding the waterway.
Fireworks for the Fourth
If you plan to celebrate the fourth in North Myrtle Beach, you’re in luck! We’ve got plenty of celebrations and fireworks shows for everyone to enjoy.
The Cherry Grove Pier
The Cherry Grove Pier has been a beloved North Myrtle Beach staple since the 1950s. Over time it has become a popular spot for visitors and locals alike to fish, enjoy the scenery, and of course, celebrate our nation's birthday with a firework show. This free show will start at 9:30 and end around 10 p.m. Since the pier is a favored viewing spot, you and your crew should plan to arrive early with beach chairs or blankets to get the best view.
Barefoot Landing will be offering a family-friendly and patriotic fireworks display at 10 p.m. for the fourth. Viewers are encouraged to arrive early to claim space on the lawn, bridge, or sidewalks. For those who want to sip a brew while enjoying the show, head to Crooked Hammock or Landshark Bar and Grill for prime viewing and drinks.
If you have your sea legs and want a unique experience, consider a ride with Sea Racer or the Barefoot Queen Event Cruises.
Barefoot Queen Riverboat
Barefoot Queen Riverboat Event Cruise offers a special Fourth of July event that includes a dinner and a full bar as you cruise down the Intracoastal Waterway. The cruise ends by docking at Barefoot Landing, where passengers can stay on the boat, avoid the crowds and enjoy the festive display from the boat.
Sea Racer’s patriotic cruise leaves at 8:30 p.m., takes its passengers out into the ocean in a thrilling ride, and cruises until 9:30 p.m., when passengers can enjoy the city’s display at Cherry Grove Pier from the water.
Combine family, fun, and fireworks with a good ole-fashioned ball game. Every Friday night from April to September, head on over to catch a Myrtle Beach Pelicans baseball game, followed by a post-game firework extravaganza that's fun for the whole family.
But the fireworks don't stop there! If you plan your visit to North Myrtle Beach later, you have the opportunity to catch some fireworks throughout the year, including special shows for Labor Day weekend, the Barefoot Landing Holiday tree lighting, and New Year's Eve.
