There are lots of Holiday lighting ceremonies in and around Myrtle Beach, and they’re starting this weekend (Can you believe that?)! So we’re putting them all in one place again to make it easier to find the one(s) you want. Many of these events include entertainment, refreshments, Santa photos, and kids’ activities (see details below).
As always, if you know of any Myrtle Beach-area lightings we’ve missed, please leave a comment below and we’ll add them as time allows.
