A Boulevard staple, this year’s “Hot Summer Nights” entertainment program, which takes place along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, will kick off on June 9 and run through September 5. As in years past, there will be FREE nightly events beginning in June and running through August. These events will include the Boardwalk Kids Carnival, which features inflatables, kids’ bands, but the event isn’t just for children as some of the hottest up and coming rock, country and funk bands will be playing at the “I Love Sugar” stage located in Plyler Park.
