2019 North Myrtle Beach Holiday Events

by the City of North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach has a lot to offer in the holiday season and invites everyone, visitors and locals alike, to enjoy these jolly events.


Visit this park-wide lighted celebration that captures the spirit of the season. The two mile drive-through light show features over two million festively displayed lights. 

Over 500 magical light displays, some up to 55 feet tall, are custom made for the Great Christmas Light Show— at least forty of them animated. Admission is $15 per vehicle of 1-15 guests, $30 per vehicle of 16-30 guests, and $60 per vehicle of 31+ guests.

Come see Santa’s Village to experience Santa’s Village Treats, visit with and have your photo taken with Santa, ride the Santa Express Train, see a petting zoo, and more. Some additional attractions require a ticket purchase. Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday only November 29-December 15. Open nightly December 19-30; closed Christmas Day.

It would not be Christmas without the annual North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade. Join your friends and neighbors on December 7 to enjoy the lighted floats and units representing groups from across the area. The parade travels down Main Street to Ocean Boulevard and disperses on 2nd Avenue North. Any location along Main Street provides a great view of the parade.

For more information and details, or to enter a group in the parade, contact Charlene Lynam at the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce at (843) 361-3045 or charlene@northmyrtlebeachchamber.com. 


Help! The Grinch has come to North Myrtle Beach and is threatening to turn all of our Candy Canes GREEN. Please join us on December 12 at The North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex Wyndham Baseball Complex and help us gather them before it is too late. After all of the Candy Canes are safe, we will cozy up with hot cocoa and watch the movie: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966). Bring a beach chair and blankets. 


The City of North Myrtle Beach and Barefoot Resort & Golf annually collaborate on a wonderful golf tournament that benefits children in need in our community. All proceeds from the event go towards the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Department’s, “Shop with a Hero” program, which makes sure that children in need have a special Christmas that includes lunch, presents and important items such as winter coats.

This year, join us on Friday, December 13 at 11am at the Dye Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf.
