Easter Traditions at The Family Beach

by The Town of Surfside Beach

Surfside Beach hosts many Easter traditions that are fun for the whole family. 

The Easter Egg Hunt and Kid’s Fair takes place on Saturday, April 11, from 1-4pm at the Huckabee Sports Complex. The complex is located at 499 Spanish Oak Dr., Surfside Beach, SC 29575. The Hunt begins at 1 pm, and is open to the first 500 children who show up, ages 10 and under. 

The Kids Fair will be held from 1-4pm with free inflatables, games, face painting, balloon art, concessions, and children’s train rides.

Now in its 58th year, the Easter Sunrise Service began in 1962, and is sponsored by the Grand Strand Ministerial Association in conjunction with all denominations along the Grand Strand. 

Historically, the service was held  by the Rev. H.E. King, pastor of First Baptist Church of Surfside Beach, in locations along the Grand Strand including: at the Pavilion in Myrtle Beach; at Crescent Beach in Little River; and at the waterfront in Surfside Beach. 

The service is always open to the public, and all are welcome. Other churches not having their own sunrise service are invited to attend.

This year, the tradition continues at the beach at the north side of the Surfside Beach pier on Easter Sunday, April 12 at 6:30am. Participating churches are Surfside United Methodist, Legacy Church, and First Baptist Church of Surfside Beach. John Rea of Legacy Church will deliver the sermon. Collections will be given to South Strand Helping Hands.

Saturday, April 18 from 9am-noon, the annual Pet Fair at the Surfside Beach Barc Park, will take place. It is located at 1st Avenue North and Willow Drive. Ark Animal Hospital will conduct a rabies clinic. Local pet vendors and rescue organizations will be in attendance. All vaccinations will be available for dogs to receive; cats must receive their vaccinations at Ark Animal Hospital located at 1011 6th Ave. N. Ext. in Surfside Beach.
