This event will take you and your family on a leisurely three mile bike ride around the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex, starting and finishing at the Amphitheater. The event has a superhero theme, and will be held Friday, March 20, beginning at sunset (approximately 7:15pm). There is also a 1-mile junior course option. Please note this is not a race, and despite the approximation of time, the event will begin promptly at sunset. Please bring your own bicycles. Wearing helmets is encouraged.
The North Myrtle Beach Pilot Club will be in attendance before the event to educate everyone on Brain and Helmet safety. They’ll be conducting a short puppet show and are donating helmets to attendees before the ride takes off.
Be sure to stick around after the event for our dance party with superhero themed activities that is sure to be a “heroic” time! The Parks and Recreation Department will provide complimentary water, lemonade and light refreshments after the ride. This is a free family event that will be sure to get everyone moving.
The North Myrtle Beach Parks & Recreation Department will host the 4th Annual Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, April 4 from 10am-2pm. The event will be held at the North Myrtle Beach Parks & Sport Complex in the Soccer/Lacrosse parking lot. Admission is free.
Touch-A-Truck provides a day for children of all ages to get an up-close, interactive look at many of the large vehicles and heavy equipment you only see on television or driving down the road. Everyone will have the opportunity to explore exhibits like dump trucks, tractors, fire trucks, police cars, race cars and more. This event also does double duty by educating youngsters about various aspects of the vehicles, such as their size and function.
In addition to all the vehicles, this community event also features public safety information and other activities. There will be a segment on helmet safety by the North Strand Optimist Club, spot camera eye screenings offered by the North Myrtle Beach Lion’s Club, and an opportunity to write letters to soldiers with the Grand Strand Blue Star Mothers. There will also be face painting.
The City of North Myrtle Beach is proud to support families who have children with autism, special needs and sensory sensitivities. There will be a sensory-friendly experience from 1:00-2:00pm, where all sirens and equipment noise will be silenced.
Everyone is invited to come out to climb, learn and discover.
